DHCP User Experience Monitor

This SAM application monitor template tests the availability of Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) services by performing typical DHCP request operations and measuring how long it takes to complete the operations.





Component monitors

The main component monitor in this template is a DHCP User Experience Monitor that measures how long it takes to get a lease from a DHCP server. It verifies that the DHCP server responds with an IP address, but neither confirms nor accepts the lease.

Note the following UDP port requirements for this component monitor:

  • For the DHCP request, the default value is 67 (IPv4) or 547 (IPv6).
  • For the DHCP response, the default value is 68 (IPv4) or 546 (IPv6).

For field descriptions, see DHCP User Experience Monitor.
