    just ran through my pi.hole logs, and my ts4k (since updating and causing a whole bunch of headaches last night) is spamming my network with requests to sage-hec.oi.tivo.com literally every few seconds (119 requests over the past 10 minutes).

    according to the logs, this didn't happen until the update last night...so it seems this is something new.

    It smells a lot like a AWS (Amazon Web Services) provisioned Enterprise Splunk server. It's probably their direction for centralized log aggregation. I don't know enough about the splunk daemon to know if spammy DNS queries is a sign of a problem, or if it's just the way it is - could go either way.

    interesting. can you see any harm in just blocking it (if i set the pi.hole to blacklist it)?
