dhclient.leases - DHCP client lease database
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).
