As per the discussions elaborated under “Exclude “local” from being placed in logs/top domains” I have been able to hide the PiHole server with “.local” domain from PiHole’s statistics.
Today, I realise when connected with my PC’s browser to the PiHole admin GUI that my PC generates loads of requests towards the PiHole server machine, which seem to be abnormally high as depicted with:
These findings are best depicted with green coloured graph that represents as client my PC and shows up with above 800 queries. All other clients in my local network are below 100 queries. The “total queries” counter is just counting up with nearly every second.
The history of high number of queries is best represented with the detailled log as depicted with:
Note: The server “dnsbox.local” is the PiHole server for which the PC in question is connected to through the web browser.
The next picture illustrades the situation of “high peak of queries when connected to PiHole server with browser” even better:
And also the PC in question with its IP address 192.168.0.32 is listed as a top client as depicted with:
Above said, I would expect that when a PC is connected with its web browser to the PiHole server for the sole purpose to call up the PiHole web admin panel that these client requests are not being taken into account in the statistics.
How can I achieve this?
