Any pi-hole users here?
What other apps are hosting on your RPi?
Me, I’m currently hosting pi-hole on a RPi 3B+ and the beginnings of a kubernetes cluster on 4 RPi 4B’s. I have a total of 6 RPi 4B’s. One is going to server NAS or NFS for the kubernetes cluster and the other is for, when I can find the time to work it, a kodi box that I want to test as a Roku replacement.
Roku is moving to voice search and all of the new models have microphones in the remotes. This is a deal-breaker for me. While I know that you can buy a non-voice model, I’d prefer to move to something open-source. Roku collects personal data and some of the Roku apps now code DNS lookups internally, which bypasses my DNS servers and we just can’t allow that.
With that being said, let’s get this party started.
On the RPi 4b, I have run:
All of these are monitoring apps. I’ve also run a couple of the Linux desktop distro’s, just as a test. My personal opinion about using RPi as a desktop computer is that it is definitely doing for most tasks, like email, surfing the web, youtube, etc. I would probably opt for a SSD to help speed things up a little, but you can’t the price.
