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?

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!

Some more interpretations for DHCP log entries required!

dhcpd: Dynamic and static leases present for 10.116.28.168.
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.
