Monitoring DHCP server performance

Because DHCP servers are of critical importance in most environments, monitoring their performance can help in troubleshooting cases where server performance has been degraded.

The Windows Server 2003 family provides a set of DHCP server performance counters that can be used to measure and monitor various aspects of server activity, such as the following:

  • All types of DHCP messages sent and received by the DHCP service.

  • The average amount of processing time spent by the DHCP server per message packet sent and received.

  • The number of message packets dropped because of internal delays at a DHCP server computer.

For more information, see DHCP performance monitoring reference.
