Subject [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-10018) Replace dnsmasq DHCP by Kea DHCP
Date Wed, 26 Jul 2017 09:14:00 GMT
Wido den Hollander created CLOUDSTACK-10018:

             Summary: Replace dnsmasq DHCP by Kea DHCP
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-10018
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: SystemVM, Virtual Router
            Reporter: Wido den Hollander

ISC Kea is a new DHCP server which is database drive and can be configured using a JSON file.

It's highly extendable and doesn't require a plain-text file for it's lease database.

When our SSVM goes to Debian 9 we can look at replacing dnsmasq by Kea and have a much faster
and more flexible DHCP server.

It also supports IPv6 with many features, so that makes it a lot more future-proof
