Thanks for your quick response and diving into it. I think I know why it happens now. But I am still not sure if this is desired behaviour.
I know it's not particularly interesting for this thread, but I hate it when others don't post their 'solutions' or what they have found out
After reading your reply I thought maybe it has nothing to do with the plugin, but with life360 in general. However I see all calls are coming from localhost
(raspberry Pi) and not from our iPhones.
Other strange thing: the behaviour seems relatively new, see screenshot. Only after Feb 24th. Then I remembered (also because you asked about IPv6, thanks for that!) I had changed something in my network to speed things up. I followed instructions in this thread: https://discourse.pi-hole.net/t/some-we ... ow/1876/23
And especially the following instructions:
Code: Select all
I had the same experience, found this thread searching for a solution, and the above IPv6 address change appears to have resolved my issue too. (Note that /etc/setupVars.conf is actually /etc/pihole/setupVars.conf.)
So, my steps were:
SSH into the Pi Hole server
Run ifconfig to get the IPv6 address (global, not local)
sudo nano /etc/pihole/setupVars.conf
Change IPV6_ADDRESS to the address from step 2
Run pihole -g
Log into routers settings
Update the IPv6 DNS server to the new address
Restart the Pi Hole server
Restart the router
In addition, I’m using Apple’s latest AirPort/TimeCapsule, and my Pi 3 is wired to the back of it with Wi-Fi disabled, incase those details are helpful to anyone else.
I guess following these steps has caused the spike in how pihole measures the calls? Anyway, thanks again for diving into it!
