Over enthusiastic DNS

1 post in this topic

Evening all,

I'm runningĀ 1.10.1 at work on Ubuntu 1904 and Windows 1903, and all is great when those two machines are together.

However, I've noticed when I take the Ubuntu (client) laptop home, my PiHole instance registers a huge increase in failed DNS queries. There's about 6 a second. It's approaching 300000 over the past 24 hours, and the machine has just spent 9 hours in the office. It's always the client searching for the server. I thought maybe there should be a backoff and retry method, or subnet affinity, or something else?

Is this amount of traffic normal? I've had to block these requests at the firewall as I have a restrictive data cap on my 3G internet connection.
