Can anyone advise on how i set this up correctly using PiHole...

My PiHole acts as a DHCP server and DNS - Its IP is 192.168.1.3, I've given lancache the IP of 192.168.1.4

 

Upstream in the container is 192.168.1.3 - is this correct?

Since PiHole has the ability to track individual devices, I would configured the DHCP server to hand out 192.168.1.3 and a fake IP address for the second IP.

 

Then, on PiHole, make it's upstream DNS custom and give it 192.168.1.4.

Then, on LanCache server, give it's upstream DNS as your ISP's DNS or 8.8.8.8, or whoever you prefer.

 

Using this method, you retain all the function of PiHole with the benefit of the LanCache server.  Just keep in mind that if DHCP hands out more than 192.168.1.3 as a valid IP address, things might not always work correctly, as windows doesn't use them as primary and if I can't talk to primary, use secondary, it will randomly use either of them depending on how it feels at the time.

 

You may also have to clear the DNS cache on the PiHole if it already knows the real IP address for the services you are trying to cache.

Thanks, this worked an absolute treat......

Hi,

 

just installed this on my machine.

On my gaming PC the primary DNS ist the lancache, secondary DNS the one from the main router.

 

With that set, a game is downloading only half or less of the normal download speed. Resetting DNS settings i get my usual 9.x-10 MB/s in Steam.

Any info where or how i could fix this?

 

 

EDIT:

Don't know why but at late night the problem got solved by itself. Even with the cache DNS i get full speed now...

Hi, I have just installed lancache docker on unraid and I am seeing these errors on the logs:

 

# Allow the use of state entries

Am I missing something?

Thanks

As in a previous post, you cannot use 2 DNS addresses as windows will randomly choose one of them to use, which means sometimes you pc will use the cache to fulfil the request and other times it will use your router and bypass the cache entirely.

I have /data/cache pointing to a ZFS pool, which previously worked great.

 

Now I'm getting errors like this:

2021/01/23 01:29:15 [alert] 2410#2410: *66 sendfile() failed (22: Invalid argument), client: 192.168.x.x, server: , request: "GET etc, etc..."

 

TLDR: For lancache/nginx on ZFS, this needs to have a setting changed at /etc/nginx/nginx.conf

 

Instead of sendfile = on

It should be sendfile = off.

 

Once I change this and restart the docker, everthing works perfectly again.  Is there any way this can be exposed as a docker variable so it will survive container updates?

I'm guessing this would require changes to the upstream docker images and probably isn't going to happen.  I realise there's not many using ZFS in unraid, but in case anyone else comes across this problem, I've "fixed" it with a disgusting user scripts hack.

 

I have this running in User Scripts every 5 minutes, it will:

  • Check if lancache-bundle docker is running
  • If so, it will check the "sendfile" setting in nginx.conf inside the docker
  • If nginx.conf is set to "sendfile on", it will change this to "sendfile off" and then restart lancache-bundle.

lancache-bundle-nginx-fix-for-zfs

#!/bin/bash
if docker ps | grep -q lancache-bundle
then 
    echo "lancache-bundle is running, checking for sendfile setting in nginx.conf"
	docker cp lancache-bundle:/etc/nginx/nginx.conf /tmp/lancache-bundle-nginx.conf
	if grep -Pxq '\tsendfile on;' /tmp/lancache-bundle-nginx.conf
	then
		echo sendfile is on, fixing nginx.conf
		sed -i '/\tsendfile on;/c\\tsendfile off;' /tmp/lancache-bundle-nginx.conf
		echo copying fixed nginx.conf to lancache-bundle docker
		docker cp /tmp/lancache-bundle-nginx.conf lancache-bundle:/etc/nginx/nginx.conf
		echo restarting lancache-bundle docker
		docker restart lancache-bundle
	else
		echo sendfile is off, nothing to do.
	fi
else
    echo "lancache-bundle is not running"
fi

So when I point my PC to lancache my internet connection isn't showing a drop but, I'm unable to reach webpages or steam (these were the two things I tested).  I was in my discord server with my buddy who was sharing his screen and I could still see that and talk to him.  But I do not have a connection when pointing the DNS of my pc to lancache.

 

Any suggestions?

up stream DNS for lanchache is probably not set to your modem/router ip

 

its probably not that your internet is out, it that your PC is unable to resolve DNS entries

So I should be setting my upstream DNS to the IP of my router?  Currently I have it set to 1.1.1.1, but I can give that a try when I get home and point lancache to the router.

Givie it a try, (1.1.1.1 works for me). I'm no networking expert but the other casue is that the "default gateway" in the docker container is wrong, as far as i know that is just taken from unraid itself, not sure though. To get to 1.1.1.1 you have to go through the default gateway, and if thats wrong it cant get out to the internet, this is my understanding anyway. Anyone correct me if i got this wrong.

So after trying that I'm still not getting an internet connection.  I am able to ping 1.1.1.1 and 8.8.8.8 but when trying to actually get to the site it never loads.  Same with Steam, it's not detecting a network connection.

 

Edit:  Now i'm getting a network connection but, it is not caching.  In the lancache folder I am seeing the confighash file.  But the cache folder has nothing in it.  I've downloaded doom a couple of times and it's not catching it. 

 

Edit #2:  So it appears the network connection I was getting was because my adapter got reset and removed the lancache dns.  So still not getting a network connection when I set the lancache docker as my DNS server.

Anyone has noticed significant slow downs using lancache lately? Everytime I reboot the container the download speed just up again but it would eventually drop down again to around 1/10 of my download speed. Everything network wise is working fine I can pull files of my server with 100MB/s+ without a problem it is just lancache downloads that are slow. Tested both in Steam and battle.net downloads I can find nothing in the logs

Thanks for that lancache port.

 

Just want to make sure.

 

Is this the latest version? (https://lancache.net/ ?) Is it fully automatic updating (like new dns names and such) so i should never need to touch it again? :D

 

Is it normal that the log shows the config files instead... of anythign usefull (like logs?)

@ConnectivIT @Josh.5

Hey, so can't we just mount the /etc/ folder into local server e.g. /mnt/SSDPool1/docker/lancache/etc?  I assume it's resetting the sendfile setting because the container get's updated or something?

 

I haven't tested if this impacts me or not, but I believe it will be since I have the same kind of setup.  And while looking into it, I noted there is not persistent store for lancache configuration, only logs and data.

 

Thanks.

I've just run this script, and now everything is crawling slow.  I guess because lancache probably wasn't working before, or because to function efficiently it really needs sendfile.  I'm going to have to disable it if I can't fix it.  I remember this slow speed happened a long time ago so perhaps it hasn't been working since then at all and it's just how it is.

 

As a guide, I'm on Gigabit fibre and my initial download starts off fast e.g. 60 MB/s then get's down to kb/s and in fact steam is telling me at one point it will be completed in 'years' lol.

It bounces up again, but not more than about 2MB/s.  Also noticing problems with my MS teams client for some reason, not sure if it's related but it's a mighty coincidence.

I'd strongly recommend slice size of 8MB configured in lancache-bundle

image.thumb.png.7e3f861fd6bae86c18370fb359110f04.png

 

and ZFS recordsize of 1MB

zfs set recordsize=1M tank/lancache-dataset

 

ZFS recordsize only applies to new files, and I'm not sure exactly what happens to existing lancache cached files when you change the slice size.  Probably best to nuke and start again.

I just had to reinstall all my dockers and unfortunately I'm unable to install now:

The command failed.

 

I did just switch to unRAID docker service using "directory" instead of "docker.img", not sure if that's related, but this is the only docker I've been able to reinstall.

 

edit: Never mind, it's another ZFS issue - back to XFS docker image.

I installed it and it worked without a problem.

My DNS config ist LanCache DNS --> pfSense DNS --> public DNS.

 

I also did some testing regarding download speeds and my results are - let's say - interesting.

It seems it depends on the game, how fast it will downloaded via the cache. I have a 500/50mbit internet connection and a 1Gbit LAN.

Here are some examples:

Need for Speed - Most Wanted (EA/Origin)

--> initial download --> ~500Mbit/s

--> internet online --> ~500Mbit/s

--> cache --> ~1000Mbit/s 

Star Wars Battlefront 2 (EA/Origin)

--> initial download --> ~300Mbit/s

--> internet online --> ~500Mbit/s

--> cache --> ~300Mbit/s

Day of the Tentacle Remastered (Steam)

--> initial download --> ~500Mbit/s

--> internet online --> ~500Mbit/s

--> cache --> ~900Mbit/s

Anno 2205 (Steam)

--> initial download --> ~300Mbit/s

--> internet online --> ~500Mbit/s

--> cache --> ~300Mbit/s

 

I just have 4 test results, but the pattern I see here is that "Need for Speed" and "Day of the Tentacle" are fairly small games (~3GB) and the other two are rather big (Anno ~16GB and SWBF2 ~90GB). My assumption is the files are cached temporarily in the RAM and therefor you don't have the disadvantage of the slow HDDs. When you check the lancache folder there are thousands of small files --> low performance with HDD and high performance with RAM cache.

 

Can someone confirm this that small games benefit from the Lancache and big ones not really?

Hi!

 

I am using this docker since yesterday and with Steam everything works as expected, however with Rockstar there seems to be no caching, there are no streams to the container and no disk activity. The download in the Rockstar launcher is working.

 

Edit:

Origin is working.

Ubisoft also seems to work.

Epic Games also works.

 

Do you guys have any idea what to do or what to check?

Not sure how that is the case, I had it working fine with PiHole, just couldn't tell if it was actually caching properly or not.  Here is how I have mine setup:

 

1) DHCP hands out DNS IP1 as PiHole IP and DNS IP2 as a dead IP.  You have to do this because Windows will randomly ask DNS.  It's not a "primary" and "secondary" IP, it's whatever Windows wants to use.

2) PiHole upsteam DNS is lancache-bundle server IP

3) lancache-bundle upstream DNS server is OpenDNS server IP

 

This provides ad blocking (as well as blacklists), caching, and whatever filter settings you  have on OpenDNS.

 

Just make sure that when you are troubleshooting/making changes to DNS servers that you do an ipconfig /flushdns on the computer you are troubleshooting with, as Windows with cache DNS IPs and you won't be actually asking the DNS server.  Another method to verify is to talk directly to the DNS servers.

 

From a cmd prompt, type in "nslookup", it will connect to your default DNS server.  If you want to change server, type "server" and then IP, such as "server 8.8.8.8", this will ask that DNS server for the next lookup.

 

Edit: Example-

 

C:\Users\jzawacki>nslookup
Default Server:  UnKnown
Address:  10.10.10.12

 

> server 10.10.10.14
Default Server:  [10.10.10.14]
Address:  10.10.10.14

 

> steamcache.cs.steampowered.com
Server:  [10.10.10.14]
Address:  10.10.10.14

 

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    steam.cache.lancache.net
Address:  10.10.10.14
Aliases:  steamcache.cs.steampowered.com

 

Hey,

i have set it up like this ( Point 3 i have the upstream to 8.8.8.8/1.1.1.1 both do not work) but if i ping steamcache.cs.steampowered.com for example i get an error (not reachable).

Every url works exept the url´s which should be cached. So I can browse as usual with pi hole blocking all ads but i cant download a game.

Strangly at some point after 10-20 min steam starts downloading but does not use lancache. Bevor that time it says server not reachable. Even the download pictures do not show.

I tried disabling pi hole but the issue persists.

 

If I edit the DNS Server inside windows to the lancache it works but then i do not have the adblock. So for my understanding is there a problem between the communication from pi hole to lan cache.
Does someone know how to fix this?
