SYNOPSIS

expiretable [-dnvp] [-a anchor] [-t age] table

DESCRIPTION

expiretable is used to remove entries from the pf table specified by table with an age greater than that specified by -t age. The age in question being the amount of time that has passed since the statistics for the respective entry in the target table was last cleared.

The options:
-a anchor
  Specify the anchor containing the (private) table.
-d Daemonize. Detach from terminal and run in the background. The -p flag is implied.
-n Dry-run. Go through the motions, but don’t actually delete anything.
-p Will cause expiretable to poll for expired entries instead of exiting.
-t age Specify the maximum age of a table-entry. age can be specified as a positive integer, in seconds, or as a series of positive integers with suffixes. Valid suffixes are d (days), h (hours), m (minutes), s (seconds). The total number of seconds must be less than 100 million.
-v Verbose output. Use twice for even more verbose output.

EXAMPLES

The following removes any entries in table int.users older than one hour:
# expiretable -v -t 3600 int.users

This example removes any entries in table int.users older than one and a half hour:

# expiretable -v -t 1h30m int.users
