I have a switch which is acting as dhcp relay and since some day the process dhcpd is saturating the cpu. I can notice a peak from 10% to 99% in within one hour and now is keeping stay at 100%
Basically the config is :
forwarding-options helpers bootp interface
Model: ex3200-48t JUNOS Base OS boot [12.3R6.6]
PID USERNAME THR PRI NICE SIZE RES STATE TIME WCPU COMMAND 1266 root 1 132 0 9528K 4008K RUN 52.7H 68.51% dhcpd
BOOTP: Received packets: 47885191 Forwarded packets: 68282073 Dropped packets: 110 Due to no interface in DHCP Relay database: 0 Due to no matching routing instance: 0 Due to an error during packet read: 0 Due to an error during packet send: 20 Due to invalid server address: 0 Due to no valid local address: 90 Due to no route to server/client: 0
Would you please suggest a starting point for investigationg the problem?
