I'd love to enter a feature request, but until discord believes I've earned enough cool points, I'll put this here.
Basically, I'd like to request a feature in pi-hole that allows for the pihole.log file to be a named pipe. As I mention in the article this change enables sending syslog to a remote server for collection, on device troubleshooting as the logs can still be viewed from the pipe, and less wear on the storage device.
I have a working example in the article. I just recently upgraded to 5.2.2 and I'll document the changes required to maintain the configuration.
