NAME

Mail::SpamAssassin::BayesStore - Bayesian Storage Module  

DESCRIPTION

This is the public API for the Bayesian store methods. Any implementation of the storage module must implement these methods.  

METHODS

new
public class (Mail::SpamAssassin::BayesStore) new (Mail::SpamAssassin::Bayes $bayes)

Description: This method creates a new instance of the Mail::SpamAssassin::BayesStore object. You must pass in an instance of the Mail::SpamAssassin:Bayes object, which is stashed for use throughout the module.

DB_VERSION
public instance (Integer) DB_VERSION ()

Description: This method returns the currently supported database version for the implementation.

read_db_configs
public instance () read_db_configs ()

Description: This method reads any needed config variables from the configuration object and then calls the Mail::SpamAssassin::Bayes read_db_configs method.

tie_db_readonly
public instance (Boolean) tie_db_readonly ()

Description: This method opens up the database in readonly mode.

tie_db_writable
public instance (Boolean) tie_db_writable ()

Description: This method opens up the database in writable mode.

Any callers of this methods should ensure that they call untie_db() afterwards.

untie_db
public instance () untie_db ()

Description: This method unties the database.

calculate_expire_delta
public instance (%) calculate_expire_delta (Integer $newest_atime,
                                             Integer $start,
                                             Integer $max_expire_mult)

Description: This method performs a calculation on the data to determine the optimum atime for token expiration.

token_expiration
public instance (Integer, Integer,
                 Integer, Integer) token_expiration(\% $opts,
                                                    Integer $newest_atime,
                                                    Integer $newdelta)

Description: This method performs the database specific expiration of tokens based on the passed in $newest_atime and $newdelta.

expire_old_tokens
public instance (Boolean) expire_old_tokens (\% hashref)

Description: This method expires old tokens from the database.

expire_old_tokens_trapped
public instance (Boolean) expire_old_tokens_trapped (\% $opts)

Description: This methods does the actual token expiration.

XXX More docs here about the methodology and what not

sync_due
public instance (Boolean) sync_due ()

Description: This methods determines if a sync is due.

expiry_due
public instance (Boolean) expiry_due ()

Description: This methods determines if an expire is due.

seen_get
public instance (Char) seen_get (String $msgid)

Description: This method retrieves the stored value, if any, for $msgid. The return value is the stored string ('s' for spam and 'h' for ham) or undef if $msgid is not found.

seen_put
public instance (Boolean) seen_put (String $msgid, Char $flag)

Description: This method records $msgid as the type given by $flag. $flag is one of two values 's' for spam and 'h' for ham.

seen_delete
public instance (Boolean) seen_delete (String $msgid)

Description: This method removes $msgid from storage.

get_storage_variables
public instance (@) get_storage_variables ()

Description: This method retrieves the various administrative variables used by the Bayes storage implementation.

The values returned in the array are in the following order:

0: scan count base

1: number of spam

2: number of ham

3: number of tokens in db

4: last expire atime

5: oldest token in db atime

6: db version value

7: last journal sync

8: last atime delta

9: last expire reduction count

10: newest token in db atime

dump_db_toks
public instance () dump_db_toks (String $template, String $regex, @ @vars)

Description: This method loops over all tokens, computing the probability for the token and then printing it out according to the passed in template.

set_last_expire
public instance (Boolean) _set_last_expire (Integer $time)

Description: This method sets the last expire time.

get_running_expire_tok
public instance (Time) get_running_expire_tok ()

Description: This method determines if an expire is currently running and returns the time the expire started.

set_running_expire_tok
public instance (Time) set_running_expire_tok ()

Description: This method sets the running expire time to the current time.

remove_running_expire_tok
public instance (Boolean) remove_running_expire_tok ()

Description: This method removes a currently set running expire time.

tok_get
public instance (Integer, Integer, Time) tok_get (String $token)

Description: This method retrieves the specified token ($token) from storage and returns it's spam count, ham acount and last access time.

tok_get_all
public instance (\@) tok_get_all (@ @tokens)

Description: This method retrieves the specified tokens (@tokens) from storage and returns an array ref of arrays spam count, ham acount and last access time.

tok_count_change
public instance (Boolean) tok_count_change (Integer $spam_count,
                                            Integer $ham_count,
                                            String $token,
                                            Time $atime)

Description: This method takes a $spam_count and $ham_count and adds it to $token along with updating $tokens atime with $atime.

multi_tok_count_change
public instance (Boolean) multi_tok_count_change (Integer $spam_count,
                                                  Integer $ham_count,
                                         \% $tokens,
                                         String $atime)

Description: This method takes a $spam_count and $ham_count and adds it to all of the tokens in the $tokens hash ref along with updating each tokens atime with $atime.

nspam_nham_get
public instance (Integer, Integer) nspam_nham_get ()

Description: This method retrieves the total number of spam and the total number of spam currently under storage.

nspam_nham_change
public instance (Boolean) nspam_nham_change (Integer $num_spam,
                                             Integer $num_ham)
