DHCPv6 Leases need 100% CPU

  • When I click in the Menu on "Status -> DHCPv6 Leases" (status_dhcpv6_leases.php) 100 percent CPU is consumed and and the error "500 - Internal Server Error" is displayed.
    By checking "top in the shell, I can see that "awk" is running two times with all CPU.

    That can happen if you have a huge or corrupted DHCPv6 leases file.

  • that's it: I deleted dhcpd6.leases  and dhcpd6.leases~ in /var/dhcpd/var/db
