    Monitoring DHCP Relay Statistics

    Purpose

    Display DHCP packet error and relay agent option statistics that are reported for both DHCP relay and DHCP relay proxy, and also to display DHCP server statistics related only to DHCP relay.

    Note: The show dhcp relay proxy statistics command displays additional DHCP statistics that the router reports only for DHCP relay proxy.

    Action

    To display DHCP relay statistics:

    host1# show dhcp relay statistics
                           DHCP Relay Statistics
                           ---------------------

      Slow down pacer                                             0

    Relay Agent Option statistics (standard & proxy modes):
      add Relay Agent Option circuit ID suboption                 On
      add Relay Agent Option remote ID suboption                  On
      packets with giaddr override                                0
      packets with Relay Agent Option override                    2
      packets forwarded with Relay Agent Option already present   4
      dropped packets with Relay Agent Option already present     3
      dropped giaddr spoof packets                                0
    DHCP server statistics (standard mode only):
      dropped duplicate request packets                           12
      packets transmitted to servers                              38
      packets received from servers                               26
      dropped unknown xid reply packets                           0
      dropped stale request packets                               12
    

    To display detailed statistics for DHCP relay only, use the optional detail keyword—this command displays DHCP server statistics and dropped unknown message type reply packets statistics:

    host1# show dhcp relay statistics detail
                         DHCP Relay Detail Statistics
                         ----------------------------

    Dropped stale requests                 6          6               0
    

    Meaning

    Table 1 lists the show dhcp relay statistics command output fields.

    Table 1: show dhcp relay statistics Output Fields

    Field Name

    Field Description

    Packet error statistics (standard & proxy modes)

    dropped discover packets, no resources

    Number of received DHCP relay discover messages that were discarded because of lack of resources

    dropped dhcp packets, no resources

    Number of received DHCP relay messages, other then discover messages, that were discarded because of lack of resources

    dropped bad message operation packets

    Number of received DHCP relay messages that were discarded because their message operation (for example, bootrequest, bootreply) was unknown, possibly due to corruption

    dropped unknown message type request packets

    Number of received DHCP relay request messages that were discarded because their message type (for example, discover, offer-request) was unknown, possibly due to corruption

    dropped unknown message type reply packets

    Number of received DHCP relay reply messages that were discarded because their message type (for example, offer, ack) was unknown, possibly due to corruption

    Packet Pacing Algorithm (standard & proxy modes)

    Speed up pacer

    Number of times the DHCP relay increased the rate of client packets processed

    Slow down pacer

    Number of times the DHCP relay decreased the rate of client packets processed

    Current client pps

    Rate of client packets processed per second

    Relay Agent Option statistics (standard & proxy modes)

    add Relay Agent Option circuit ID suboption

    Status of circuit ID suboption, on or off

    add Relay Agent Option remote ID suboption

    Status of remote ID suboption, on or off

    packets with giaddr override

    Number of received DHCP relay requests whose giaddr field is overridden with IP address 0.0.0.0

    packets with Relay Agent Option override

    Number of received DHCP relay requests whose relay agent information option is overridden with an option string created by this relay agent

    packets forwarded with Relay Agent Option already present

    Number of received DHCP relay requests already containing the relay agent information option that were forwarded to DHCP servers

    dropped packets with Relay Agent Option already present

    Number of received DHCP relay requests that were discarded because they already contained the relay agent information option when this relay agent was configured to insert the option

    dropped giaddr spoof packets

    Number of received DHCP relay requests that were discarded because the gateway IP address field already contained this relay agent’s IP address

    DHCP server statistics (standard mode only)

    dropped duplicate request packets

    Number of received DHCP relay requests that were discarded because they have a matching server address and XID of an outstanding DHCP server request

    packets transmitted to servers

    Number of DHCP relay requests successfully transmitted to DHCP servers

    packets received from servers

    Number of DHCP relay replies successfully received from DHCP servers

    dropped unknown xid reply packets

    Number of DHCP relay replies received from DHCP servers that were discarded because their server address and XID do not match an outstanding DHCP server request

    dropped stale request packets

    Number of DHCP relay requests sent to DHCP servers that were discarded because their replies timed out
