About this talk

This talk, by Tomek Mrugalski, the original author of Kea and an industry expert in the DHCP and DHCPv6 protocols, explains how to maximize the number of leases per second your Kea DHCP server can provide. Tomek reviews test results measuring the impact that settings such as queue size and enabling multi-threading can have on throughput. Tomek uses his knowledge of the software to explain how to use various features such as host reservations, client classification and subnetting for maximum performance.

Internet Systems Consortium is a non-profit corporation dedicated to developing software and offering services in support of the Internet infrastructure. ISC develops and distributes three open source Internet networking software packages: BIND 9, ISC DHCP, and Kea DHCP. BIND 9, ISC’s Domain Name System (DNS) software program, is widely used on the Internet by enterprises and service providers, offering a robust and stable platform on top of which organizations can build distributed computing systems. ISC DHCP and Kea implement the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol for connection to an IP network. Kea DHCP is ISC newer DHCP software, and is designed for modular extension, dynamic reconfiguration, and high performance. In addition to our open source software, ISC also operates critical Internet infrastructure in the form of the F-Root server, one of the 13 Internet root name servers that power the global Internet. ISC is supported through the sale of annual support subscriptions for our open source software. These support services also include advance notification of security vulnerabilities, and in some cases, non-public software extensions.
