Stand Alone GeoIP reader. ==== Why? ___ We're using this on a bunch of production servers. That means that the associated data file will be updated, but may have some random corruption that could cause a segfault, which would kill the server. Since we'd rather not have that happen, we're putting this into it's own service to protect from any (albeit remote) corruption crashes. Reliablity means being paranoid. What's the difference between this and django_geoip? ___ As little as possible. Data: ____ Fetch the GeoIP databases from MaxMind: http://www.maxmind.com/app/geolite System Requirements: ____ You'll need to install the following system libraries using your preferred local package manager: (e.g. for Debian, use apt-get) libevent-dev libgeoip-dev Installing: ____ $make build Running: ____ To run as a stand-alone server: $make run_sa You can execute on calls to http://_host_:5039/_IP Address_ e.g. http://127.0.0.1:5039/188.8.131.52 To run as a Powerhose Client: $make run_ph This will require a powerhose client. See geoip/example_client.py for an example of how to use this. For more info about powerhose see: http://powerhose.readthedocs.org/en/0.6/
