*Note: PADD has been adopted by the Pi-hole team, thanks to JPMCK for creating this helpful tool!


PADD (formerly Chronometer2) is a more expansive version of the original that is included with Pi-Hole. PADD provides in-depth information about your Pi-hole.


Setup PADD

More in-depth information about setting up PADD can be found in this repo’s wiki.

  • Get a copy of PADD by running:
cd ~
wget -N
  • Make PADD executable by running
sudo chmod +x
  • Set PADD to auto run by adding the following to the end of ~/.bashrc:
# Run PADD
# If we’re on the PiTFT screen (ssh is xterm)
if [ "$TERM" == "linux" ] ; then
  while :
    sleep 1

One line version

cd ~ ; echo "if [ \"\$TERM\" == \"linux\" ] ; then\n  while :\n  do\n    ./\n    sleep 1\n  done\nfi" | tee ~/.bashrc -a
  • Reboot your Pi-Hole by running sudo reboot. PADD should now run when your Pi-Hole has completed booting.

Updating PADD

  • Just run
cd ~
wget -N

Note: if you are already running Chronometer2 v1.3.1 or below, you’ll need to follow these instructions!
