Hi Pat,
sorry for the delayed response. I just checked and our production box handing out 12,449 leases when I checked was using 32 MB RAM.
Our CPU is constantly at 0.0, and as has been discussed many times in the past (check the archives if you like), dhcpd has very modest hardware requirements and is nice to the CPU. What it isn't nice to is the hard disk due to logging and fsync requirements. I don't believe any current hardware will limit your implementation CPU/RAM wise, but disk sure could.
