So I have one box running dhcpd and recently it's been doing some weird things. Primarily DHCP will hang and stop handing out IPs. This is intermittent. Sometimes happens every hour or so.. but then can go days and be fine. Restarting dhcp fixes the problem. Nothing in /var/log/messages showing any issues. DHCP will just stop logging and giving IPs.

I thought this was related to syslog-ng acting weird as well. Syslog-ng would hang as well, and restarting would complain about unable to stop and I would need to kill the process, delete the pid and zap the service. I figured that was the DHCP problem, but dealing with this, syslog-ng seems to be working fine, and today DHCP hung while syslog-ng was working fine.

I rolled back dhcp to previous version thinking the latest update may have had a bug, and things worked for days, until today. So the previous version of dhcp is still causing the problem (but seems less frequent).

I'm currently using dhcp-4.2.5_p1-r2 but dhcp-4.3.1-r2 was having the same issue.

Here are my USE flags:
[ebuild     U  ] net-misc/dhcp-4.3.1-r2::gentoo [4.2.5_p1-r2::gentoo] USE="client server ssl -ipv6 -ldap (-selinux) -vim-syntax" 8771 KiB

DHCP is chroot'd.

Right now I'm running dhcp in strace to see if that can tell me anything.

Here is my emerge --info output

There is plenty of free disk on the box. I almost feel it's an issue with the lease file.. not sure. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hmmm... DHCP hung again. Last entries in strace shows...

22917 time(NULL)                        = 1430495517
22917 send(3, "<30>May  1 15:51:57 dhcpd: DHCPI"..., 62, MSG_NOSIGNAL) = 62
22917 time(NULL)                        = 1430495517
22917 send(3, "<30>May  1 15:51:57 dhcpd: DHCPA"..., 77, MSG_NOSIGNAL

Which is normal

Also, syslog-ng just hung as well (at the same time). One thing I noticed. When I did a ps aux | grep dhcp, I saw 2 processes.. my strace process (which was the only one when I started) and dhcp. So something looks to have started dhcp on top of it? Likewise, doing a ps aux | grep syslog, there were 2 processes. I had to kill them both to restart syslog and dhcp.
