     dhclient.leases - DHCP client lease database

     The Internet Software 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

     The lease file is named dhclient.leases.IFNAME, where IFNAME represents
     the network interface the DHCP client acquired the lease on.  For
     example, if dhclient(8) is configured for the em0 network device, the
     lease file will be named dhclient.leases.em0.

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

     /var/db/dhclient.leases.IFNAME             Current lease file.

     The dhclient(8) utility was written by Ted Lemon <[email protected]> under a
     contract with Vixie Labs.

     The current implementation was reworked by Henning Brauer
     <[email protected]>.
