Option to not log selected client(s)

I’d like to have one (or more) clients not show up in the logs. They do not to be logged at all.

They need not to bypass the pihole. It is great that the pihole filter applies to them, I just want their ‘noise’ removed from the logs.

Is it possible already, or would this be a new feature?

Currently the most you can do is to hide the domains in the queries.

ok, I’ll check that, but as this client is connecting to many different domains and some domains are also checked by other clients, this is not an ideal solution…


I think this is a very useful request that I would like to see implemented as well.

I set-up Pi-hole on a router to which several people have access to and I like to check out the query log. Without hiding the queries from all (or certain devices) I have a powerful monitoring tool at my hands that I don’t want (at least I don’t want the monitoring part).

I am surprised to read so little about this feature to be honest.

Any update on this?

I’m in the same situation somehow. A server that should be filtered as well spoils my logs with cronjob-related DNS queries… So excluding that machine would be very helpful.

Please vote for this idea!

sadly my long awaited feature to opt out selected clients just from logging (but still filtering) hasn't made it to the new release :frowning:

this thread is more than 2 years old now but:
ist there a chance to implement this finally in the next release?

cheers + thanx for all the good work + the new dark mode looks great

edit: isn't this feature easy to implement because this (IGNORE_LOCALHOST=no|yes) already is possible. or do i miss something?

edit2: would be great if there were some additional upvotes or at least an answer ...
