DHCP monitor for Windows Server?

Recommended Posts

We had a DHCP pool that was nearing capacity and noticed that LM didn't alarm?

Please can we request some DHCP pool monitoring capabilities for Windows Server?

Coincidentally I was just looking for the same thing.  How can I monitor the progress to get some DHCP scope monitoring capabilities?

If anyone is wondering what the DHCP scope monitor should do - here is some a suggestions.

  • Use a Datasouce to identify that a Windows server is running DHCP
  • Retrieve the scopes that exist
  • Retrieve the number of IP addresses in the scope range ass well as the number of unassigned IP addresses
  • Create a threshold for an alarm if # unassigned  IP addresses is below a specified value or the % of devices that are unassigned drops below a specified %.
  • Graph scope #, assigned #, unassigned #

Or something like that.
