EXPIRE-IP-DB(1)		    General Commands Manual	       EXPIRE-IP-DB(1)

NAME
       expire-ip-db - remove old entries from a	dns-terror DB file

SYNOPSIS
       expire-ip-db [-v] [-d days] [-m mark-size] [ip2host.db]

DESCRIPTION
       expire-ip-db  removes  entries  older  than a given time	from a DB file
       produced	by dns-terror.	This keeps the DB file	from  growing  without
       bounds.	If this	were not done, then eventually the overhead of storing
       months' worth of	IP address to hostname mappings	could  become  greater
       than the	speed benefit from having them available, and the memory image
       of dns-terror could become unworkably large.

OPTIONS
       -d days
	      Remove entries older than	days.  Default is 35  days,  which  is
	      long  enough  for	 daily entries to last to the next monthly re-
	      port.

       -m marksize
	      Print a notice every marksize entries.

       -v     Verbose: print progress messages.

FILES
       ip2host.db
	      Default DB file to process.
