I'm writing a script using perl, I'm utilizing the LWP::useragent to make the API call. The script works if I have a smaller amount of IP addressses, however, I'm stuck where I need to add 4000+ IP addresses in which they are all in different subnets and range.

Are there any way to do this ?

The only way I can think of right now, is to break down the IP list, so I can have shorter URI length and do multiple API call. But I'm wondering if anyone else able to do it in 1 API call.


my $url = "$title&host_ips=$ips";


my $ua  = LWP::UserAgent->new();


my $request =  HTTP::Request->new(GET => $url);


print "\nREQUEST: ", $request->as_string ,"\n";


$request->authorization_basic($user, $pwd);


my $result = $ua->request($request);


if ($result->is_success) {

          print STDERR "\nSUCCESS: " , $result->content;


} else {

# An HTTP related error

          printf STDERR "\nFAIL: HTTP Error: %s\n", $result->as_string;

exit 1;




Here's the output:






HTTP/1.1 414 Request-URI Too Large



<TITLE>414 Request-URI Too Large</TITLE>
