Pi-Hole Status & Statistics

This is a basic API Poller for the Pi-hole Ad Blocker.  This API poller was originally discussed in an article Don't Shut Your Pi-hole, Monitor it! (The Sequel).

My version of this template only has two values monitored for a status change.  The rest are just informational.  The two with applied thresholds are:

  • Service Status - if the service reports back anything except "enabled" it's critical
  • Gravity Updated: Days Ago - if the blocked domain database was updated over 7 days ago it's warning and over 14 days ago, it's critical.

The simple pi-hole API does not require authentication.
