DHCP client lease database


The Internet Systems Consortium DHCP client keeps a persistent database of leases that it has acquired that are still valid.   The database is a free-form ASCII file containing one valid declaration per lease.   If more than one declaration appears for a given lease, the last one in the file is used.   The file is written as a log, so this is not an unusual occurrence.

The format of the lease declarations is described in dhclient.conf(5).
