Monitoring DHCP Binding Host Information

Purpose

Display information for specified DHCP client bindings, with results arranged in ascending order by IP address. The show dhcp host command displays information only for DHCP client bindings with assigned IP addresses.

Action

To display information about all DHCP local server bindings:

host1:vr1#show dhcp host local
BindingId      HwAddress      Type    IpSubnet   IpAddress   State
----------   --------------   -----   --------   ---------   -----
2409734593   8000.0001.9365   local   0.0.0.0    81.3.0.2    bound
2409734595   8000.0003.9365   local   0.0.0.0    81.3.0.3    bound

The output of the show dhcp host command is identical to the output of the show dhcp binding command except for the order of the client bindings. The results of the show dhcp host command are arranged in ascending order by IP address, whereas the results of the show dhcp binding command are arranged in ascending order by binding ID.

To display binding information for DHCP clients with a specified interface string:

host1:vr2#show dhcp host interface ip71.*4
BindingId      HwAddress        Type     IpSubnet   IpAddress   State
----------   --------------   --------   --------   ---------   -----
3053453315   7000.0002.9365   external   0.0.0.0    71.1.0.4    bound
3053453325   7000.000c.9365   external   0.0.0.0    71.1.0.14   bound
3053453353   7000.0016.9365   external   0.0.0.0    71.1.0.24   bound

This show dhcp host command uses the * (asterisk) regular expression metacharacter in the interface string to display information for DHCP client bindings on virtual router vr2 with an IP address beginning with 71 and ending with 4. The results of the show dhcp host command are arranged in ascending order by IP address.

To display binding information for DHCP clients that match the specified circuit ID string:

host1:vr3#show dhcp host circuit-id \\xe3
BindingId      HwAddress       Type     IpSubnet   IpAddress   State

To specify nonprintable byte codes in the circuit ID string or remote ID string, you can use the string \\xab, where ab is a hex code of the byte. This show dhcp host command uses the string \\xe3 to represent byte E3 in the circuit ID string. This command displays information for the DHCP client bindings on virtual router vr3 with the specified circuit ID string, with results arranged in ascending order by IP address.

To display information about DHCP external server bindings with a specified subnet address:

host1:vr1#show dhcp host external 0.0.0.0

To display information about DHCP bindings with a specified IP prefix:

host1:vr1#show dhcp host ip—prefix 10.2.0.0/28

To display information about DHCP relay proxy bindings without a lower-layer interface:

host1:vr1#show dhcp host relay—proxy no-interface

To display binding information for DHCP clients that match the specified remote ID string:

host1:vr1#show dhcp host remote-id “remote id.*west”

Filtering the display of DHCP client bindings by the circuit ID string or remote ID string is not supported for the DHCP external server application. DHCP external server does not store information about the agent-circuit-id suboption or agent-remote-id suboption of option 82.

Meaning

Table 115 lists the show dhcp host command output fields.
