NAME
       dhclient.leases - DHCP client lease database

DESCRIPTION
       The  Internet  Software Consortium DHCP client keeps a persistent data-
       base of leases that it has acquired that are still valid.    The  data-
       base  is  a  free-form  ASCII file containing one valid declaration per
       lease.   If more than one declaration appears for a  given  lease,  the
       last  one  in the file is used.   The file is written as a log, so this
       is not an unusual occurrence.

       The format of the lease declarations is described in dhclient.conf(5).

FILES
       /var/db/dhclient.leases
