NAME

Mail::SpamAssassin::BayesStore::SQL - SQL Bayesian Storage Module Implementation  

SYNOPSIS

 

DESCRIPTION

This module implementes a SQL based bayesian storage module.  

METHODS

 

new

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

Description: This methods creates a new instance of the Mail::SpamAssassin::BayesStore::SQL object. It expects to be passed an instance of the Mail::SpamAssassin:Bayes object which is passed into the Mail::SpamAssassin::BayesStore parent object.

This method sets up the database connection and determines the username to use in queries.  

tie_db_readonly

public instance (Boolean) tie_db_readonly ();

Description: This method ensures that the database connection is properly setup and working. If necessary it will initialize a user's bayes variables so that they can begin using the database immediately.  

tie_db_writable

public instance (Boolean) tie_db_writable ()

Description: This method ensures that the database connetion is properly setup and working. If necessary it will initialize a users bayes variables so that they can begin using the database immediately.

                                             Integer $start,
                                             Integer $max_expire_mult)

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

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

sync_due

public instance (Boolean) sync_due ()

Description: This method determines if a database sync is currently required.

Unused for SQL based implementation.  

seen_get

public instance (String) seen_get (string $msgid)

seen_put

public (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.

public instance (Boolean) seen_delete (string $msgid)

Description: This method removes $msgid from the database.  

get_storage_variables

public instance (@) get_storage_variables ()

Description: This method retrieves the various administrative variables used by the Bayes process and database.

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, Array @vars)

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

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 (String $time) get_running_expire_tok ()

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

There can be multiple times, so we just pull the greatest (most recent) value.  

set_running_expire_tok

public instance (String $time) set_running_expire_tok ()

Description: This method sets the time that an expire starts running.  

remove_running_expire_tok

public instance (Boolean) remove_running_expire_tok ()

Description: This method removes the row in the database that indicates that and expire is currently running.  

tok_get

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

Description: This method retrieves a specificed token ($token) from the database and returns it's spam_count, ham_count and last access time.  

tok_get_all

public instance (\@) tok_get (@ $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,
                                         String $atime)

Description: This method takes a $spam_count and $ham_count and adds it to $tok along with updating $toks 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 ($spam_count, $ham_count) nspam_nham_get ()

Description: This method retrieves the total number of spam and the total number of ham learned.  

nspam_nham_change

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

Description: This method updates the number of spam and the number of ham in the database.  

tok_touch

public instance (Boolean) tok_touch (String $token,
                                     String $atime)

Description: This method updates the given tokens ($token) atime.

The assumption is that the token already exists in the database.  

tok_touch_all

public instance (Boolean) tok_touch (\@ $tokens
                                     String $atime)

Description: This method does a mass update of the given list of tokens $tokens, if the existing token atime is < $atime.

The assumption is that the tokens already exist in the database.

We should never be touching more than N_SIGNIFICANT_TOKENS, so we can make some assumptions about how to handle the data (ie no need to batch like we do in tok_get_all)  

cleanup

public instance (Boolean) cleanup ()

Description: This method peroms any cleanup necessary before moving onto the next operation.  

get_magic_re

public instance get_magic_re (String)

Description: Performs an upgrade of the database from one version to another, not currently used in this implementation.  

clear_database

public instance (Boolean) clear_database ()

Description: This method deletes all records for a particular user.

Callers should be aware that any errors returned by this method could causes the database to be inconsistent for the given user.  

backup_database

public instance (Boolean) backup_database ()

Description: This method will dump the users database in a marchine readable format.  

restore_database

public instance (Boolean) restore_database (String $filename, Boolean $showdots)

Description: This method restores a database from the given filename, $filename.

Callers should be aware that any errors returned by this method could causes the database to be inconsistent for the given user.  

db_readable

public instance (Boolean) db_readable()

Description: This method returns a boolean value indicating if the database is in a readable state.  

db_writable

_get_db_version

private instance (Integer) _get_db_version ()

Description: Gets the current version of the database from the special global vars tables.  

_initialize_db

private instance (Boolean) _initialize_db ()

Description: This method will check to see if a user has had their bayes variables initialized. If not then it will perform this initialization.  

_put_token

private instance (Boolean) _put_token (string $token,
                                       integer $spam_count,
                                       integer $ham_count,                                  string $atime)

Description: This method performs the work of either inserting or updating a token in the database.  

_put_tokens

private instance (Boolean) _put_tokens (\% $tokens,

Description: This method performs the work of either inserting or updating tokens in the database.  

_get_oldest_token_age

private instance (Integer) _get_oldest_token_age ()

Description: This method finds the atime of the oldest token in the database.

The use of min(atime) in the SQL is ugly and but really the most efficient way of getting the oldest_token_age after we've done a mass expire. It should only be called at expire time.  

_get_num_hapaxes

private instance (Integer) _get_num_hapaxes ()

Description: This method gets the total number of hapaxes (spam_count + ham_count == 1) in the token database for a user.  

_get_num_lowfreq

private instance (Integer) _get_num_lowfreq ()

_token_select_string

private instance (String) _token_select_string

Description: This method returns the string to be used in SELECT statements to represent the token column.

The default is to use the RPAD function to pad the token out to 5 characters.
