Take a look at …


Major bottleneck is disk IO so try to speed that up (raid, flash etc). If using UNIX put the leases file in a mount point with ‘noatime’ enabled. Send the logs to another server using syslog.

I created the configuration with sufficient long pool, I tried running perfdhcp tool for load testing as suggested in many google forums and I observed that at a maximum of 10-14 transactions per second(tried with other different tools also), If I increase load the packets are getting dropped, I don't think that is benchmark of ISC dhcp, can any one has idea or any suggestions of how can i increase load handling capacity of the dhcpd service
