Please interpret the DHCP server log entries I have mentioned inside the message
 
dhcpd: Wrote 0 deleted host decls to leases file.
dhcpd: Wrote 0 new dynamic host decls to leases file.
dhcpd: Wrote 1 leases to leases file.
dhcpd: Listening on LPF/eth0/00:0c:29:1b:a6:af/10.116.28.0/24
dhcpd: Sending on LPF/eth0/00:0c:29:1b:a6:af/10.116.28.0/24
dhcpd: Sending on Socket/fallback/fallback-net

I have to do log analysis for the ISC DHCP server. please tel me what do the above log entries mean?

dhcpd: Wrote 0 deleted host decls to leases file.
dhcpd: Wrote 0 new dynamic host decls to leases file.

No hosts have been removed from your DHCP lease file.


dhcpd: Wrote 1 leases to leases file.

One host has received an IP address from your DHCP server.

dhcpd: Listening on LPF/eth0/00:0c:29:1b:a6:af/10.116.28.0/24
dhcpd: Sending on LPF/eth0/00:0c:29:1b:a6:af/10.116.28.0/24
dhcpd: Sending on Socket/fallback/fallback-net

Your DHCP server is listening for more DHCP requests.


Corrections are welcome!

dhcpd: Abandoning IP address 10.116.28.165: declined.
dhcpd: DHCPDECLINE of 10.116.28.165 from 00:0c:29:fc:4f:95 (LogLabs209) via eth0: not found
dhcpd: ICMP Echo reply while lease 10.116.28.200 valid.
dhcpd: Abandoning IP address 10.116.28.200: pinged before offer
dhcpd: ICMP Echo Reply for 10.116.28.165 late or spurious.

Not to tell you to RTF(ine)M, but check your local dhcpcd docs (/usr/share/doc), info pages and those DHCP-related RFC's could help. Know where to look and you've got all the nfo at your fingertips.
