Mail::Abuse::Filter::Time
Filter incidents according to how old they are

Mail::Abuse::Filter::Time - Filter incidents according to how old they are



NAME

Mail::Abuse::Filter::Time - Filter incidents according to how old they are


SYNOPSIS


  use Mail::Abuse::Filter::Time;

  my $f = new Mail::Abuse::Filter::Time;

  $report->filter([$f]);


DESCRIPTION

Removes those events from a Mail::Abuse::Report that are older than a given threshold, which can be specified in the configuration file for the abuse report.

The following configuration keys are recognized:

filter before
Incidents older than the specified time will be removed from the report and not considered. The time can be specified as a specific date or as a time delta according to the specifications in the Date::Manip manpage.

If this is not specified, the default is to ignore incidents that happened more than 96 hours in the past (ie, ``96 hours ago'').

filter after
Incidents newer than the specified time will be removed from the report and not considered. Normally, this time specification should be specified as a relative date (ie, ``in 48 hours'' which is the default). This is useful to discard events that occur in the future.

filter local timezone
If specified, assume this timezone for the conversion of the dates. Defaults to UTC.

debug time filter
When set to a true value, causes this module to emit debugging messages via warn(). Of course, defaults to a false value.

The following methods are implemented in this class.

criteria($report, $incident)
This function receives a Mail::Abuse::Report and a Mail::Abuse::Incident object. It returns a true value if the incident should be handled or false otherwise. This function will be generally called by the Mail::Abuse::Report object when requested to filter its events.

EXPORT

None by default.
