Description

I think it would be a good idea to at least take a look at kea dhcp by ISC. It seems to be a much better solution for pfsense than ISC DHCP.

It looks like Facebook migrated to Kea DHCP. Should be for a good reason [[https://code.facebook.com/posts/845909058837784/using-isc-kea-dhcp-in-our-data-centers/]]

they moved because it's better.

but they have a really large environment.

we've known about kea for a while. (One of my dogs is named "Kea", the other is "sudo".)

Agreed. We are implementing this internally as well and it'd be great to be able to run it on our pfSense boxes.
