pi-hole-ftl no-deamon debug

I can confirm that, 60, 120, and 600 work. But 3600 does not. did you get that debug output?

max.bra commented on 2017-12-13 12:20

@graysky i suspected it.

I noticed yesterday that the commit countdown starts from an integer portion of time. I'll explain:

my yesterday test was on a 10-minute commit and the debug output, summarizing, said:

20:43 ftl started

20:50 commit

21:00 commit

so it may be that for portions of time greater than one hour it can not trigger.

need to inspect the source

Is anyone else experiencing no writes to /etc/pihole/pihole-FTL.db with large values such as 3600 (package default)?

waiting for a parameterized version, you can customize the FTL database commit interval by modifying the following PKGBUILD line:

sed -i "s|#define DBinterval 60|#define DBinterval 3600|w $_ssc" "$srcdir"/$_pkgname-$pkgver/FTL.h

where 3600 is for this package new timing of an hour. you can write 600 for 10 minutes or 7200 for 2 hours and so on.

@graysky - the define is perfectly honored. applying...

graysky commented on 2017-12-11 22:33

@max.bra - Only the new "long term data" functions use this database. For my use case, once per hour or even once per 6 hours is plenty as I rarely if ever expect to use that feature. I don't know what a good default is for everyone though. Once per hour?

DL6ER mentioned in the ticket I referenced that he will consider making this a tuneable so in the future we don't have to worry about it.

max.bra commented on 2017-12-11 22:26

how about 10 mins? it seems to be a good timings. comunity?

max.bra commented on 2017-12-11 22:25

I had not seen that define: problem solved!
