Continuous DNS queries


New Member
My Planefinder Radar, running 5.0.161 armhf software and reporting normally, queries DNS server for A and AAAA records for every 10 seconds. I guess this is because the unit gets an IPv6 address and does not have an AAAA record or IPv6 address. Can the unit give up asking for AAAA when none is returned?
DNS queries are tiny in bandwidth so I wouldn't worry about it, you wouldn't notice it unless you had something monitoring it. It will always ask for a AAAA record if the unit got an IPv6 address from your DHCP server.

The DNS TTL is set low to facilitate changes to the IP address.
Thank you Lee, I recently installed 'pi-hole' to filter/cache DNS and it showed up there.
