In a one-hour interval, more than 8,000 PSP DHCP Discover Requests were processed.
When a device PXE boots, it sends a DHCP discover request to find an IP address or a PXE server. The message is marked so that it is handled by PXE servers. This counter indicates how many times a PXE server receives a DHCP discover request. When a device PXE boots, it might send multiple DHCP discover requests, until a PXE server responds or a timeout passes.
This condition could occur because:
Too many devices are PXE booting.
A rogue PXE client is on the network.
The PXE server is slow to respond, so the client continues to send requests.
Determine whether there are too many devices PXE booting.
Ensure that there is no rogue PXE client on the network.
Determine whether the PXE server is slow to respond to client requests.
