Problem this snippet solves:

This utility allow for automated detection of new releases of the geo-ip database on downloads.f5.com, download it on a local cache directory and upload on the configured F5 units.

How to use this snippet:

To use it you need a few perl modules that could be installed using cpan or packaged on your distro:

  • WWW::Mechanize
  • Config::General
  • File::Homedir
  • Net::SSH::perl
  • Net::SFTP

Setting up your F5 units to allow ssh-key based login should also help

There is a configuration file storing your bigip major release, login information to downloads.f5.com and list of device to update.
