Description

We have multiple Dynamic DNSes set up for multiple interfaces. Several WANs, each with several Dynamic DNS entries. Whenever an update happens, we get as many e-mails as many entries are set up for the sane interface, all with the following same text:

Notifications in this message: 1
================================

14:03:46 DynDNS updated IP Address on WAN2 (igb0) to 1.2.3.4

It would be nice for the information to be more detailed, to include in the notification text the hostname which the update has happened for.
The user can't tell from this, what hostnames were affected by the update. This can be confusing in situations when there are multiple hostnames on multiple interfaces.

The text could be a little more descriptive, perhaps.

The messages are already grouped. If multiple messages fire close enough together, they are collected into a single e-mail. These must be delayed just enough to trigger multiple messages.

Perhaps???

On WAN1 we have 7 different hostnames, on WAN2 we have 3 different hostnames. Sometimes we need to change a couple of hostnames from one interface to another, it's hard to tell from 7 consecutive e-mails, all containing the same text, which were the affected hostnames...

I was agreeing with you, the attitude is unnecessary.

It's worth noting that this only applies to traditional Dynamic DNS instances (Services > Dynamic DNS, Dynamic DNS Clients tab), RFC 2136 clients already included the hostname in their notification messages.

This has been working really well. Only issue is that HE.net tunnel broker updates print the tunnel ID instead of an FQDN since it doesn't work by hostname, but it's still handy to know so it's not worth changing.
