What should you do if the DHCP server on the network is overloaded
and you are convinced that the DHCP server on the network is overloaded, also you need another DHCP on the network to load-balance the existing one? You are required to present the required data to your supervisor to get approval for the same.
Audit the dhcp server and generate reports for the same-2. use a performance monitoring tool that can record the dhcp performance for at least a week.-auditing the dhcp server is usually done for security reasons, but in this case you may use this facility to convince your supervisor of the access rate of your dhcp server on the network. the performance monitoring tool helps to record or capture any performance counters that you may be interested in such as the disk read/write, access rate, performance and utilization of cpu, memory etc. this data that you capture must be for the period of at least a week to indicate the highs and lows of usage time. otherwise the data required for analysis is insufficient.
