Summary

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.

Causes

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.

Resolutions

  • 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.
