DHCP Scope Monitor

The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Monitor Scope polls DHCP servers to extract IP address scopes and highlight scopes which have few addresses remaining. The number of dynamically-assigned and unassigned IP Addresses for each scope is displayed. You can use DHCP Monitor to show which scopes within your environment are running out of IP Addresses.

Add DHCP Scope to the list of monitored scopes

  1. Click Scope > Add DHCP Scope.
  2. On the Add DHCP Scope window, specify the IP address or host name and the SNMP community string, and then click OK.
    You can add numerous DHCP servers to the tool, simultaneously monitoring numerous scopes.

This tool supports DHCP scopes only on Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows 2003 servers and monitors scopes using SNMP. SNMP must be installed on the DHCP server.
