DHCLIENT.LEASES(5)	    BSD File Formats Manual	    DHCLIENT.LEASES(5)

NAME
     dhclient.leases — DHCP client lease database

DESCRIPTION
     The Internet Software Consortium DHCP client keeps a persistent database
     of leases that it has acquired that are still valid.  The database is a
     free-form ASCII file containing one valid declaration per lease.  If more
     than one declaration appears for a given lease, the last one in the file
     is used.  The file is written as a log, so this is not an unusual occur‐
     rence.

     The lease file is named dhclient.leases.IFNAME, where IFNAME represents
     the network interface the DHCP client acquired the lease on.  For exam‐
     ple, if dhclient(8) is configured for the em0 network device, the lease
     file will be named dhclient.leases.em0.

     The format of the lease declarations is described in dhclient.conf(5).

FILES
     /var/db/dhclient.leases.IFNAME  Current lease file.

AUTHORS
     The dhclient(8) utility was written by Ted Lemon ⟨mellon@vix.com⟩ under a
     contract with Vixie Labs.

     The current implementation was reworked by Henning Brauer
     ⟨henning@openbsd.org⟩.
