Dude - Slow DDNS to IP

Tue Apr 26, 2022 2:01 pm

Hello,

As to not reopen a topic from 2008 viewtopic.php?p=105231, I am opening a new one.

I am monitoring quite a lot of devices with dynamic IPs, thus the need for DDNS.
The problem: The Dude is very slow to detect IP changes. Cannot say for sure, but it seems it can take up to 20 minutes.
DDNS provider is very fast to update their records (seconds).
Any check from any machine shows the new IP in seconds, yet The Dude takes its sweet time to update.
Was not able to find any setting for how often The Dude would refresh its name to address values.
Funny thing is that I have added those DDNS in an address list on the same CHR running The Dude and the new IPs are updated in seconds, yet The Dude still looks for the old IP.
So it seems to me that The Dude does not query the local DNS cache of the CHR.

Is there anything I am missing in this regard or anything that I can do to cut down this downtime?

Thank you.

The DNS Lookup Interval default value is 60 minutes
and you can change that on device property, not on general settings.

Thank you rextended.
An extra pair of eyes always helps.
