Also, it'll work with ISC's DHCP/BIND pretty much right out of the box.

Which is a bonus if you're using that, I guess, since there are fewer GUIs for that. Dixie and Sauron look neat, but have not been updated in a dog's age (or weren't when I last checked a year ago).

Forgive me if I am wrong, but I think chris is looking for a tool to help display and analyze his usage of pools and such, not to help configure his
DHCP server. FWIW, I am also interested in this type of tool, but have not been able to find one that works well.
