    Hello,
    Is it normal for a single household to show 10,000 request made in a single day? A household of 4 with multiple devices connected occasionally but none being used for the entire day.

    thx.

    It's in a normal range, but what is normal for you is another matter. If you see roughly 10,000 requests every day when your usagfe is about the saqme, then it's normal for you.

    Where "extra" requests could come from:
    You have an open or unsecured wifi network others are using.
    You use browsers like Firefox that have prefetching enabled by default.
    You empty browser caches frequently, or you have the local resolver cache disabled on devices.
    Your IP isn't properly updated to your Dashboard and you are collecting Stats from another user.
    Some device or updater is looking for a domain that isn't resolving or which you have blocked, and it tries repeatedly to access the domain.

    Look at the graph for a day and see where you have peaks and how many requests at the peaks. Do they match your times of internet usage?
    Thankful People: zelus

    Thank you. I'll keep an eye on the stats over the next few days to see if I detect anything unusual.
