Pihole have no log files


#1

Like the head says:

Ans i see no changing dashboard, while pihole is running:

Looks like Pihole is working…
Only will see the graphs and the log


#2

maby try pihole -r then setup again so you choose logging on


#3

Run pihole -d for a debug token. If you chose to not log queries during setup, then this is expected.


#4
Did what u both ask...

I am not a linux pro guys…

Initially, I was going to ask if you have any clients using Pi-hole as their DNS server, but then I saw this:

This is likely your problem if dnsmasq cannot write any information the log file there would be zero values in the log.


#6

mmm how can i solve that?
there is a 8 gig micro in.
use some place for home automation.
How many space is pihole using?

Is there a way to see what stuff use the space?
The best way to remove / clean the stuff that i do not need…

Well, according to that you have space available…

Will you send the output of cat /var/log/pihole.log to us securely?


#8

Hi!!

I have a really similar problem.

I think the pi.hole is working properly but it’s not logging the activity. I also get this message when I run pihole -d.

cat: write error: No space left on device

Do you have any idea how to fix this? I have plenty of space in my sd for logging.

/dev/mmcblk0p1 14588M 2266M 12146M 16% /

Thanks!

This is a log2ram issue, besides using RAM for the /var/log directory, you will lose the data stored in /var/log on every reboot of the device.
