I’m opening this new Feature Request so we can have a single place to discuss about how we would like to shape this idea until it goes into Pi-hole and out to you.
First, let me say that we would like to leave the dashboard as it is right now (information over the day), because it has often proven to be very useful also as a network diagnostics tool. However, we could add - due to the advent of the
FTL engine (beta testing) - a “long-term statistics” page where a limited amount of data is shown.
I’m currently thinking about storing a “snapshot” of the statistics at the time the Pi-hole log is flushed, i.e. we keep
- over time graph data of each day (graph is kept forever in the same resolution as shown on the dashboard)
- Top Domains, Top Advertisers, Top Clients, Forwards Directions, and Query Types data
What we will not keep: Individual Query data (that consumes way too much space on the arbitrary setup).
(Does it make sense to look what you have browsed last Christmas between 09:00:00 and 09:09:59 ?)
We can implement all this quite easily in
What do you think?
