I was noticing that the number of DHCP address in the DHCP cache was running

my horror I saw that there were 81 addresses assigned at exactly the same
time and all expired at exactly the same time. I'm assuming that these were
all assigned to the same machine. How is this possible? Where could I learn
about this and how to prevent it?
Any decent log will show you the MAC level address. So go out and
investigate the machine.
There are plenty of known and documented ways of depleting a DHCP pool in
microseconds. A simple google search will do the trick.
I hate duplicates. Just reply to the relevant mailinglist.
