Why so many outbound network requests?

I have a raspberry pi running pi-hole for ad blocking and I noticed something kind of strange. There was a huge spike in network traffic in the middle of the night.

Looked at the logs and its coming from the tablo at a rate of anywhere from 1-10 requests per second.

I did some googling and the requests seem to be ok, nothing nefarious. Is this type of spike normal?

Totally normal.

That’s Tablo’s nightly maintenance routine.

It checks in with our servers, make sure you still have an active subscription, goes out to the guide provider’s API, downloads a day’s worth of guide data (and any changes) and performs a few cleaning scripts.
