How can I monitor & understand the query logs???

Idk if its just me or what but I have alot of trouble trying to sift thru the logs & determine what exactly I'm seeing, I need to understand what I'm reading & what the logs mean... so what am I missing? Is there something else I should be using that will filter out the query logs for me into something readable? I hope that makes sense, I'm open for any suggestions! Thank yoooou

    It's the domains that your devices connect to, you can name them to see exactly what device does what, Red colored ones are blocked by NextDNS, if you have Allow Affiliate Tracking enabled, Purple colored ones are proxied to preserve privacy and Green ones are allowed by the Allow List.

    Anything that isn't colored is the domains that were queries that your devices made and weren't altered (Not Blocked/Proxied etc.)

      Hey thank you so much I appreciate you responding you worded that better then I ever could (adhd always gets in the way)  so this is what I need help with, knowing where those device domain queries are going&coming from like what sites they access, the info behind the queries something in lamens terms thats understandable. Is that possible? Like what "parental controls" do but without the parental controls ya know what I mean. Something to where I can see what's being accessed on my router & devices...

      There's got to be an easier way something that can interpret the dns logs that I already have

    Yep try to set up YOGA software with nextDNS as only config. you'll be able to debug all DNS queries (no pub here just a helper)
