MQTT Mosquitto broker error unknown connection

I am getting the error below in logs of MQTT. I assume this IP address is coming from an HA add-on. how can I determine what IP address this is tied to, meaning what HA add-on is attempting to connect to mqtt?

I am running the following:

  • Core 2024.7.1
  • Supervisor 2024.06.2
  • Operating System12.4
  • Frontend 20240705.0
2024-07-08 15:25:20: New connection from on port 1883.
2024-07-08 15:25:20: Client <unknown> closed its connection.

It is normal. It is the supervisor watchdog. If you want to test this you can temporarily disable the watchdog and see if the log messages stop:

Don’t leave this off. If the addon crashes for whatever reason the watchdog can restart it.

thanks so much. I was going crazy trying to figure out what service would continually be trying to connect.
