    For campus-wide DHCP server monitoring, I use dhcpd-pools ( But for simple monitoring, this tool you’ve presented is cool! Thanks.

      Thanks. I left a comment on the blog. I didn’t receive any query from you. Everyday, I receive a lot of comments. I couldn’t reply to them all. Sorry.

          Glad you fixed the problem on your own. BTW, I did a quick glance at the blog you mentioned earlier. He not only copy/paste from my blog but also from so many other blogs. 99% of the guides posted there are complete cop/paste from many blogs and websites.

    Thank you so much for this script! It’s really useful for us.
    I had to correct the path of dhcpd lease file like you did and another thing i suggest to check for you.
    In the script i downloaded the screen output of the script as exchanged the active and non active users and i had to change the text to match the correct ones.

    Keep up the good work!
