How to improve the accurate of GeoIP


(MX) #1

Hi there,

I'm using GeoIP filter to add geographical information with the Maxmind GeoLite2 databases.
However, I found this database has lots of mistake, the location is wrong for the IP from China in most of time.
So could I create a custom GeoIP database?
Or, is there any other methor to improve the accurate of GeoIP?

I'm using Logstash 5.3.1 now

Many Thanks!!!

The best thing to do is to download the latest version of the Maxmind databases. The versions we ship are by definition a little out of date.

Outside of that , I don't have much advice. IP geolocation is by its nature imprecise, and I don't know of better products.

I’m using the latest version, but there are too many mistakes.

Now I'm trying to correct the GeoIP's result by a script. I still working on it :sob:
