[Feature Request] add Tabs per subnet to DHCP leases Status page



  • It would be easier to glance at the DHCP leases if the DHCP leases Status page was broken in tabs pers subnet.  for example my network has  3 subnets "LAN:DMZ:WIRELESS" and currently all leases are displayed on one flat page, in my opinion it would be more user friendly if they leases were displayed per tab. see attached

    Unfortunately, the DHCP daemon puts all of the data into one lease file. Any separation would require significant processing and additional RAM usage by the script. For large lease database this could be prohibitive. It could be done, but it's not something we have had any motivation to do.

    A "filter" box on the list would be quicker and have a similar net effect.

    The list is already sortable (click the column header for the IP addresses) which helps.



  • jimp, a filter box is a great idea too, thanks for considering!!!

    Couldn't it at least get a list of scopes, and while it's iterating through the leases file building the page count the active/inactive, etc status in each scope and present totals for each scope at the bottom?  Giving those totals to SNMP periodically would be a bonus.  It's pretty sad that ISC dhcpd doesn't maintain a dhcpd.status file with this sort of info alongside the dhcpd.leases file.

    Yes, it could, but see above, re: Extra processing power and RAM that doesn't scale well.

    IIRC it does keep some stats and info that can be queried via OMAPI but I never have quite got that rigged up and working in a way that helped.
