DHCP Log of an XGS3100

Hello,

I am trying to extract specific info from a DHCP syslog generated from an XGS3100, 1 log per day for 253 IP's for the last 50 days, masses of data.

What I am trying to find out is, can the log tell me when a given IP was 'last seen' or would that be when an IP address no longer renews?

With 253 reserved addresses and without expanding the subnet, hoping to remove some un-needed IP's/MAC's.

Has anyone needed to do a similar exercise? Any inspiration would be appreciated.

I guess an alternative would be to remove all reservations, let any leases naturally expire and see what's left.

Many Thanks,

Roy

  • Hi,

    I can't help with your specific log request, but you could change the time to live of the DHCP settings to reduce the idle number of addresses. After you have done that, restart the XGS.
