Description Of Issue

I’ve setup a Raspberry Pi with pi-hole to funnel DNS requests in my home (for adblocking and parental control). Looking at the logs, I see that the Roon core on the Synology tries to reach push.roonlabs.com every 20 seconds, continuously.
Is this normal?
If yes, isn’t this abusive?


Yes, it’s normal for a Roon Core to contact Roon’s backend servers for metadata updates amongst other activities. I see from my Pi-hole system that my Core has a burst of activity every 24 hours or so:

In addition, Roon Labs collects analytics data about how people are using Roon. This is all spelt out in the Privacy Policy.

Hi @Kelsen_Balstriel,

As @Geoff_Coupe mentioned, yes, this is normal behavior and it’s your Core communicating with our back-end servers. Nothing to be alarmed about.
