    Specifying the Maximum Number of DHCP Clients Per Interface

    By default, there is no limit to the number of DHCP local server clients allowed on an interface. However, you can override the default setting and specify the maximum number of clients allowed per interface, in the range 1 through 500,000. When the number of clients on the interface reaches the specified limit, no additional DHCP Discover PDUs are accepted. When the number of clients subsequently drops below the limit, new clients are again accepted.

    To configure the maximum number of DHCP clients allowed per interface:

    1. Specify that you want to configure override options.
      • For DHCP local server:
        [edit system services dhcp-local-server]
        user@host# edit overrides
    2. Configure the maximum number of clients allowed per interface.
      [edit system services dhcp-local-server overrides]
      user@host# set interface-client-limit number

    In a routing instance, you can configure the maximum number of DHCP clients allowed per interface at the [edit routing-instances routing-instance-name system services dhcp-local-server overrides] hierarchy level.
