What is DHCP?
DHCP (acronym for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is a network management protocol whereby a DHCP server dynamically assigns an IP address and other network configuration parameters to devices in order to communicate with other IP networks. The DHCP operates based on the client–server model on UDP/IP networks.
This package monitors DHCP service Availability and Response Time.
This package automatically provisions the ServicePilot Manager and configures the ServicePilot Agent to collect indicators of availability and performance for DHCP services through DHCP requests.
The statistics gathered in this way include:
- Delay to obtain a lease
- Number of retries needed to get the lease
