DHCP IP utilization

My DHCP server is running ISP DHCP Server V3.0pl1, maintaining hundreds of scopes. Is there any tool which can report the IP utilization of each scope so that administrator can be alerted when certain threshold is hit?

What is "ISP DHCP Server V3.0pl1"?

Googling either gets nothing:
"ISP DHCP Server V3.0pl1"
"ISP DHCP Server V3.0p1"
"ISP DHCP Server V3.0"
or links that make it sound like a generic term:
"ISP DHCP Server"

A link would help.

Edit -- So would double checking your typing:

what's the problem?? it's just a build of ISC DHCP version 3, whatever the specific release version is called by whoever built it. i was looking earlier for open source IPAM software, i've certainly sen some, but just can't remember the name at the moment. found phpIP, but that wasn't quite what i found a while ago.

acid_kewpie, I have just had a look of phpIP. It's another good open source project but isn't much related to IP assignment as DHCP does. Anyway, thanks.

no, i know i'm afraid. there is one out there on sourceforge i'm sure. i'm stuck thinking of "iptrack" but that's not it... i'm sure enough googling for ipam and gpl nd such terms will eventually find it.

Oh, I've found one which is called DHCPStatus. It gets subnet information based on dhcpd.conf and dhcpd.leases files, then generates reports either in web pages or command line output. With a bit scripting, % utilization of each scopes can be obtained.

cool, not the one i'd seen but as i said, can't remember the name for the life of me.
