Pi-hole: A black hole for Internet advertisements

Pi-hole is a network-level, advertisement and internet tracker blocking, caching and forwarding DNS sinkhole, and optionally a DHCP server, intended for use on a private network.

The latest versions of Pi-hole expose an API that allows you to track key performance indicators of Pi-hole performance.

  1. I'm publishing the following materials for Pi-hole as I used it on my local network at home:
  • PropertySource that automatically identifies Pi-hole servers based on HTTP response and adds the category "Pi-hole" to the device. 
    • addCategory_pihole has a LogicMonitor locator code of G4J6RY
  • DataSource that monitors the Pi-hole and associated statistics on a LogicMonitor device with the system.category of "Pi-hole."
    • DNS_Server_Pihole_Summary has a LogicMonitor locator code of 43WHXH
  • Dashboard that utilizes the DataSource to approximate the look and feel of the metrics provided by Pi-Hole itself.

  • Looks like I gotta start monitoring my Pi-Hole as well.

    I've been using mine for a while and its fantastic but getting some long term metrics would be cool too.

    Great job ?
