ipLocation() Query Function

Determine country, city, and long/latitude for an IP address (ipv4 or ipv6). The attributes ip.country, ip.city, ip.lon, ip.lat are added to the event.

Humio includes GeoLite2 data created by MaxMind <https://www.maxmind.com>. By default, the database is automatically updated if the cluster is running with a valid Humio license.

In order to use your own MaxMind database, place it in the Humio data directory as IpLocationDb.mmdb and run Humio with environment variable AUTO_UPDATE_IP_LOCATION_DB set to false. You must use a database that includes city information (e.g., GeoLite2 City).
