if you are disturbed by the growing lease file and you have a relatively
small environment I guess you just might regularly restart the dhcpd
which would then cleanup and compress the logfile.
Although on the other hand having a lease time of 20s in a production
network is insanely low.

not sure what you mean with connections in this context.

As others already mentioned this is not how it works.
