What is DHCP?
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a network management protocol used to dynamically assigned IP addresses to network devices so as to enable cross-network communication using the Internet Protocol (IP). DHCP operates based on a client–server model over UDP/IP networks.
How to monitor DHCP?
ServicePilot makes it easy to monitor DHCP with no configuration required on the target server. Simply add an appmon-dhcp package to your monitoring environment and ServicePilot automatically performs DHCP requests via its agent to the service and collects availability and performance statistics.
The statistics gathered in this way include:
- Delay to obtain a lease
- Number of retries needed to get a lease
How to install a dhcp resource?
- Use your ServicePilot OnPremise installation or a SaaS account.
- Add a new dhcp resource via the web interface (
/prmresources) or via API (
/prmpackagespage), the default ServicePilot agent or another agent will be provisioned automatically.
Details of the dhcp package are located in the
/prmpackagespage of the software.
