BLOCKLISTCTL(8)             System Manager's Manual            BLOCKLISTCTL(8)

NAME
     blocklistctl - display and change the state of blocklistd

SYNOPSIS
     blocklistctl dump [-abdnrw]

DESCRIPTION
     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
             ones.

     -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
             time.

     -w      Normally the width of addresses is good for IPv4, the -w flag,
             makes the display wide enough for IPv6 addresses.

NOTES
     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
     condition 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.

HISTORY
     blocklistctl first appeared in NetBSD 7.  FreeBSD support for
     blocklistctl was implemented in FreeBSD 11.
