Fast IP validator for bulk IP data.

Project description


Test PyPI Github Pages PyPI - Python Version License: MIT Stars

fipv (fast ip validator) is a python package build with C language. Simply it includes basic IP address validator functions as a C function, so works faster than others. Following C functions avaliable on this package:

  • ipv4
  • ipv4_cidr
  • ipv6
  • ipv6_cidr

Can be used on bulk IP data. You can find detailed test benchmark at below. Also see github pages for full package reference and documentation.


fipv can be installed easily with pip3. It requires Python 3.9+

$ pip3 install fipv


import fipv

# Basic C validation functions
True False True False

import fipv

# Validate bulk IPv4 data
ips = [''] * 1000000
valids = [ip for ip in ips if fipv.ipv4(ip)]

Test Benchmark (2021-10-07)

In this test, it was tested validation speed and average RAM usage with different python validators and different data types. Finally results saved to below table.

Test Duration: Used linux time command for determine execution time of script.
Avr. RAM Usage: Used linux ps command every 0.1 second and calculated RAM average.
