Octoprint Phoning Home 10 Times a Minute

I have noticed that Octoprint sends several requests every minute on the minute to a couple of servers. Screenshot attached. What is the purpose of this? Is there a way to disable this?

That seems a bit broken!

OctoPrint sends out network requests, if enabled, to octoprint.org domains for:

  • Plugin repository (every 24 hours)
  • Plugin notices (6 hours)
  • Plugin blacklist (15 mins)
  • Connectivity check (15 mins, not a full http request but just checks if the name resolves + connection is possible)
  • Opt-in usage tracking (15 mins iirc, all the data sent is switchable).
  • Announcements (not sure)

All of those are configurable, and those are the default times, first two in the plugin manager and the last two under 'server'. You might want to check what is configured for all of these, in case they have been set to very short for some reason.

The connectivity check was the issue, that’s now resolved. Thanks!
