Match IP address to IP range with a lookup

Explorer

I have an index=logs that has an ip_address field like 5.9.100.100
I want to correlate it against a csv file that has list of ip ranges to see owner. first field contains range beginning and second is range end. so in case of 5.9.100.100, it should match with csv file below

Is there a way to lookup csv ip ranges and join on ip_address field in index=logs? Also, if csv file contained IP range in CIDR format instead, would this be a better way to lookup against?

5.9.0.0 5.9.255.255 Owner1
5.10.64.0 5.10.127.255 Owner2

For lookups to use CIDR the address column in your lookup must be in CIDR notation. And you need to define the field as a CIDR lookup as in this answers post.

So only way is to convert ranges to a CIDR format in all the csv file?

If you want to do the lookup based on network ranges yes. Otherwise you are looking up by string matching what happens to also be an IP.
