NAME
       dhclient.leases - DHCP client lease database

DESCRIPTION
       The Internet Systems Consortium DHCP client keeps a persistent database
       of leases that it has acquired that are still valid.   The database 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
