FTLDNS

FTLDNS (pihole-FTL) provides an interactive API and also generates statistics for Pi-hole®'s Web interface.

  • Fast: stats are read directly from memory by coupling our codebase closely with dnsmasq
  • Versatile: upstream changes to dnsmasq can quickly be merged in without much conflict
  • Lightweight: runs smoothly with minimal hardware and software requirements such as Raspberry Pi Zero
  • Interactive: our API can be used to interface with your projects
  • Insightful: stats normally reserved inside of dnsmasq are made available so you can see what's really happening on your network

Official documentation

Installation

FTLDNS (pihole-FTL) is automatically installed when installing Pi-hole.

IMPORTANT

FTLDNS will disable any existing installations of dnsmasq. This is because FTLDNS is dnsmasq + Pi-hole's code, so both cannot run simultaneously.
