blocklistctl -- display and change the state of blocklistd
blocklistctl dump [-abdnrw]
blocklistctl is a program used to display the state of blocklistd(8)
The following options are available:
-a Show all database entries, by default it shows only the embryonic
-b Show only the blocked entries.
-d Increase debugging level.
-n Don't display a header.
-r Show the remaining blocked time instead of the last activity
-w Normally the width of addresses is good for IPv4, the -w flag,
makes the display wide enough for IPv6 addresses.
Sometimes the reported number of failed attempts can exceed the number of
attempts that blocklistd(8) is configured to block. This can happen
either because the rule has been removed manually, or because there were
more attempts in flight while the rule block was being added. This con-
dition is normal; in that case blocklistd(8) will first attempt to remove
the existing rule, and then it will re-add it to make sure that there is
only one rule active.
blocklistctl first appeared in NetBSD 7. FreeBSD support for
blocklistctl was implemented in FreeBSD 11.
