Millions of PTR Queries


There are literal millions of queries. How do i solve this?query

Edit: TURN OFF Conditional Forwarding, that seemed to be my issue


The first is a Bonjour request (Apple uses this). The second is likely related.

Do you have conditional forwarding enabled? That can cause a lot of circular traffic.


I did have it enabled, I continued to look for the culprit and figured that it sounded like it was.

Edit: Queries dropped from 8000 to 200 after disabling it. I’m thinking that was the problem.


If you were using conditional forwarding to show client IP/names on your dashboard, you can use Pi-Hole DHCP and accomplish the same thing.
