Kea Messages Manual

This is the messages manual for Kea version 1.0.0-beta2.

Abstract

This is the messages manual for Kea version 1.0.0-beta2. The most up-to-date version of this document, along with other documents for Kea, can be found at http://kea.isc.org/docs.


Chapter 1. Introduction

This document lists each message that can be logged by the programs in the Kea package. Each entry in this manual is of the form:

IDENTIFICATION message-text

... where "IDENTIFICATION" is the message identification included in each message logged and "message-text" is the accompanying message text. The "message-text" may include placeholders of the form "%1", "%2" etc.; these parameters are replaced by relevant values when the message is logged.

Each entry is also accompanied by a description giving more information about the circumstances that result in the message being logged.

For information on configuring and using Kea logging, refer to the Kea Guide.

Chapter 2. Kea Log Messages

ALLOC Module

ALLOC_ENGINE_LEASE_RECLAIMED successfully reclaimed lease %1

This debug message is logged when the allocation engine successfully reclaims a lease. The lease is now available for assignment.

ALLOC_ENGINE_REMOVAL_NCR_FAILED sending removal name change request failed for lease %1: %2

This error message is logged when sending a removal name change request to DHCP DDNS failed. This name change request is usually generated when the lease reclamation routine acts upon expired leases. If a lease being reclaimed has a corresponding DNS entry it needs to be removed. This message indicates that removal of the DNS entry has failed. Nevertheless the lease will be reclaimed.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_ALLOC_ERROR %1: error during attempt to allocate an IPv4 address: %2

An error occurred during an attempt to allocate an IPv4 address, the reason for the failure being contained in the message. The server will return a message to the client refusing a lease. The first argument includes the client identification information.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_ALLOC_FAIL %1: failed to allocate an IPv4 address after %2 attempt(s)

The DHCP allocation engine gave up trying to allocate an IPv4 address after the specified number of attempts. This probably means that the address pool from which the allocation is being attempted is either empty, or very nearly empty. As a result, the client will have been refused a lease. The first argument includes the client identification information.

This message may indicate that your address pool is too small for the number of clients you are trying to service and should be expanded. Alternatively, if the you know that the number of concurrently active clients is less than the addresses you have available, you may want to consider reducing the lease lifetime. In this way, addresses allocated to clients that are no longer active on the network will become available sooner.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_DECLINED_RECOVERED IPv4 address %1 was recovered after %2 seconds of probation-period

This informational message indicates that the specified address was reported as duplicate (client sent DECLINE) and the server marked this address as unvailable for a period of time. This time now has elapsed and the address has been returned to the available pool. This step concludes decline recovery process.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_DISCOVER_ADDRESS_CONFLICT %1: conflicting reservation for address %2 with existing lease %3

This warning message is issued when the DHCP server finds that the address reserved for the client can't be offered because this address is currently allocated to another client. The server will try to allocate a different address to the client to use until the conflict is resolved. The first argument includes the client identification information.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_DISCOVER_HR client %1 sending DHCPDISCOVER has reservation for the address %2

This message is issued when the allocation engine determines that the client sending the DHCPDISCOVER has a reservation for the specified address. The allocation engine will try to offer this address to the client.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_LEASES_RECLAMATION_COMPLETE reclaimed %1 leases in %2

This debug message is logged when the allocation engine completes reclamation of a set of expired leases. The maximum number of leases to be reclaimed in a single pass of the lease reclamation routine is configurable using 'max-reclaim-leases' parameter. However, the number of reclaimed leases may also be limited by the timeout value, configured with 'max-reclaim-time'. The message includes the number of reclaimed leases and the total time.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_LEASES_RECLAMATION_SLOW expired leases still exist after %1 reclamations

This warning message is issued when the server has been unable to reclaim all expired leases in a specified number of consecutive attempts. This indicates that the value of "reclaim-timer-wait-time" may be too high. However, if this is just a short burst of leases' expirations the value does not have to be modified and the server should deal with this in subsequent reclamation attempts. If this is a result of a permanent increase of the server load, the value of "reclaim-timer-wait-time" should be decreased, or the values of "max-reclaim-leases" and "max-reclaim-time" should be increased to allow processing more leases in a single cycle. Alternatively, these values may be set to 0 to remove the limitations on the number of leases and duration. However, this may result in longer periods of server's unresponsiveness to DHCP packets, while it processes the expired leases.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_LEASES_RECLAMATION_START starting reclamation of expired leases (limit = %1 leases or %2 milliseconds)

This debug message is issued when the allocation engine starts the reclamation of the expired leases. The maximum number of leases to be reclaimed and the timeout is included in the message. If any of these values is 0, it means "unlimited".

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_LEASES_RECLAMATION_TIMEOUT timeout of %1 ms reached while reclaiming IPv4 leases

This debug message is issued when the allocation engine hits the timeout for performing reclamation of the expired leases. The reclamation will now be interrupted and all leases which haven't been reclaimed, because of the timeout, will be reclaimed when the next scheduled reclamation is started. The argument is the timeout value expressed in milliseconds.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_LEASE_RECLAIM %1: reclaiming expired lease for address %2

This debug message is issued when the server begins reclamation of the expired DHCPv4 lease. The first argument specifies the client identification information. The second argument holds the leased IPv4 address.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_LEASE_RECLAMATION_FAILED failed to reclaim the lease %1: %2

This error message is logged when the allocation engine fails to reclaim an expired lease. The reason for the failure is included in the message. The error may be triggered in the lease expiration hook or while performing the operation on the lease database.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_NO_MORE_EXPIRED_LEASES all expired leases have been reclaimed

This debug message is issued when the server reclaims all expired DHCPv4 leases in the database.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_OFFER_EXISTING_LEASE allocation engine will try to offer existing lease to the client %1

This message is issued when the allocation engine determines that the client has a lease in the lease database, it doesn't have reservation for any other lease, and the leased address is not reserved for any other client. The allocation engine will try to offer the same lease to the client.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_OFFER_NEW_LEASE allocation engine will try to offer new lease to the client %1

This message is issued when the allocation engine will try to offer a new lease to the client. This is the case when the client doesn't have any existing lease, it has no reservation or the existing or reserved address is leased to another client. Also, the client didn't specify a hint, or the address in the hint is in use.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_OFFER_REQUESTED_LEASE allocation engine will try to offer requested lease %1 to the client %2

This message is issued when the allocation engine will try to offer the lease specified in the hint. This situation may occur when: (a) client doesn't have any reservations, (b) client has reservation but the reserved address is leased to another client.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_RECLAIMED_LEASES_DELETE begin deletion of reclaimed leases expired more than %1 seconds ago

This debug message is issued when the allocation engine begins deletion of the reclaimed leases which have expired more than a specified number of seconds ago. This operation is triggered periodically according to the "flush-reclaimed-timer-wait-time" parameter. The "hold-reclaimed-time" parameter defines a number of seconds for which the leases are stored before they are removed.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_RECLAIMED_LEASES_DELETE_COMPLETE successfully deleted %1 expired-reclaimed leases

This debug message is issued when the server successfully deletes "expired-reclaimed" leases from the lease database. The number of deleted leases is included in the log message.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_RECLAIMED_LEASES_DELETE_FAILED deletion of expired-reclaimed leases failed: %1

This error message is issued when the deletion of "expired-reclaimed" leases from the database failed. The error message is appended to the log message.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_REQUEST_ADDRESS_RESERVED %1: requested address %2 is reserved

This message is issued when the allocation engine refused to allocate address requested by the client because this address is reserved for another client. The first argument includes the client identification information.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_REQUEST_ALLOC_REQUESTED %1: trying to allocate requested address %2

This message is issued when the allocation engine is trying to allocate (or reuse an expired) address which has been requested by the client. The first argument includes the client identification information.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_REQUEST_EXTEND_LEASE %1: extending lifetime of the lease for address %2

This message is issued when the allocation engine determines that the client already has a lease whose lifetime can be extended, and which can be returned to the client. The first argument includes the client identification information.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_REQUEST_INVALID client %1 having a reservation for address %2 is requesting invalid address %3

This message is logged when the client, having a reservation for one address, is requesting a different address. The client is only allowed to do this when the reserved address is in use by another client. However, the allocation engine has determined that the reserved address is available and the client should request the reserved address.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_REQUEST_IN_USE %1: requested address %2 is in use

This message is issued when the client is requesting or has a reservation for an address which is in use. The first argument includes the client identification information.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_REQUEST_OUT_OF_POOL client %1, which doesn't have a reservation, requested address %2 out of the dynamic pool

This message is issued when the client has requested allocation of the address which doesn't belong to any address pool from which addresses are dynamically allocated. The client also doesn't have reservation for this address. This address could only be allocated if the client had reservation for it.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_REQUEST_PICK_ADDRESS client %1 hasn't specified an address - picking available address from the pool

This message is logged when the client hasn't specified any preferred address (the client should always do it, but Kea tries to be forgiving). The allocation engine will try to pick an available address from the dynamic pool and allocate it to the client.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_REQUEST_REMOVE_LEASE %1: removing previous client's lease %2

This message is logged when the allocation engine removes previous lease for the client because the cliet has been allocated new one.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_REQUEST_USE_HR client %1 hasn't requested specific address, using reserved address %2

This message is issued when the client is not requesting any specific address but the allocation engine has determined that there is a reservation for this client. The allocation engine will try to allocate the reserved address.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_REUSE_EXPIRED_LEASE_DATA %1: reusing expired lease, updated lease information: %2

This message is logged when the allocation engine is reusing an existing lease. The details of the updated lease are printed. The first argument includes the client identification information.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_ALLOC_ERROR %1: error during attempt to allocate an IPv6 address: %2

An error occurred during an attempt to allocate an IPv6 address, the reason for the failure being contained in the message. The server will return a message to the client refusing a lease. The first argument includes the client identification information.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_ALLOC_FAIL %1: failed to allocate an IPv6 address after %2 attempt(s)

The DHCP allocation engine gave up trying to allocate an IPv6 address after the specified number of attempts. This probably means that the address pool from which the allocation is being attempted is either empty, or very nearly empty. As a result, the client will have been refused a lease. The first argument includes the client identification information.

This message may indicate that your address pool is too small for the number of clients you are trying to service and should be expanded. Alternatively, if the you know that the number of concurrently active clients is less than the addresses you have available, you may want to consider reducing the lease lifetime. In this way, addresses allocated to clients that are no longer active on the network will become available available sooner.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_ALLOC_HR_LEASE_EXISTS %1: lease type %2 for reserved address/prefix %3 already exists

This debug message is issued when the allocation engine determines that the lease for the IPv6 address or prefix has already been allocated for the client and the client can continue using it. The first argument includes the client identification information.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_ALLOC_LEASES_HR leases and static reservations found for client %1

This message is logged when the allocation engine is in the process of allocating leases for the client, it found existing leases and static reservations for the client. The allocation engine will verify if existing leases match reservations. Those leases that are reserved for other clients and those that are not reserved for the client will be removed. All leases matching the reservations will be renewed and returned.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_ALLOC_LEASES_NO_HR no reservations found but leases exist for client %1

This message is logged when the allocation engine is in the process if allocating leases for the client, there are no static reservations, but lease(s) exist for the client. The allocation engine will remove leases which are reserved for other clients, and return all remaning leases to the client.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_ALLOC_NO_LEASES_HR no leases found but reservations exist for client %1

This message is logged when the allocation engine is in the process of allocating leases for the client. It hasn't found any existing leases for this client, but the client appears to have static reservations. The allocation engine will try to allocate the reserved resources for the client.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_ALLOC_NO_V6_HR %1: unable to allocate reserved leases - no IPv6 reservations

This message is logged when the allocation engine determines that the client has no IPv6 reservations and thus the allocation engine will have to try to allocate allocating leases from the dynamic pool or stop the allocation process if none can be allocated. The first argument includes the client identification information.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_ALLOC_UNRESERVED no static reservations available - trying to dynamically allocate leases for client %1

This debug message is issued when the allocation engine will attempt to allocate leases from the dynamic pools. This may be due to one of (a) there are no reservations for this client, (b) there are reservations for the client but they are not usable because the addresses are in use by another client or (c) we had a reserved lease but that has now been allocated to another client.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_DECLINED_RECOVERED IPv6 address %1 was recovered after %2 seconds of probation-period

This informational message indicates that the specified address was reported as duplicate (client sent DECLINE) and the server marked this address as unvailable for a period of time. This time now has elapsed and the address has been returned to the available pool. This step concludes decline recovery process.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_EXPIRED_HINT_RESERVED %1: expired lease for the client's hint %2 is reserved for another client

This message is logged when the allocation engine finds that the expired lease for the client's hint can't be reused because it is reserved for another client. The first argument includes the client identification information.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_EXTEND_ALLOC_UNRESERVED allocate new (unreserved) leases for the renewing client %1

This debug message is issued when the allocation engine is trying to allocate new leases for the renewing client because it was unable to renew any of the existing client's leases, e.g. because leases are reserved for another client or for any other reason.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_EXTEND_ERROR %1: allocation engine experienced error with attempting to extend lease lifetime: %2

This error message indicates that an error was experienced during Renew or Rebind processing. Additional explanation is provided with this message. Depending on its nature, manual intervention may be required to continue processing messages from this particular client; other clients will be unaffected. The first argument includes the client identification information.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_EXTEND_LEASE %1: extending lifetime of the lease type %2, address %3

This debug message is issued when the allocation engine is trying to extend lifetime of the lease. The first argument includes the client identification information.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_EXTEND_LEASE_DATA %1: detailed information about the lease being extended: %2

This debug message prints detailed information about the lease which lifetime is being extended (renew or rebind). The first argument includes the client identification information.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_EXTEND_NEW_LEASE_DATA %1: new lease information for the lease being extended: %2

This debug message prints updated information about the lease to be extended. If the lease update is successful, the information printed by this message will be stored in the database. The first argument includes the client identification information.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_HINT_RESERVED %1: lease for the client's hint %2 is reserved for another client

This message is logged when the allocation engine cannot allocate the lease using the client's hint because the lease for this hint is reserved for another client. The first argument includes the client identification information.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_HR_ADDR_GRANTED reserved address %1 was was assigned to client %2

This informational message signals that the specified client was assigned the address reserved for it.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_HR_PREFIX_GRANTED reserved prefix %1/%2 was was assigned to client %3

This informational message signals that the specified client was assigned the prefix reserved for it.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_LEASES_RECLAMATION_COMPLETE reclaimed %1 leases in %2

This debug message is logged when the allocation engine completes reclamation of a set of expired leases. The maximum number of leases to be reclaimed in a single pass of the lease reclamation routine is configurable using 'max-reclaim-leases' parameter. However, the number of reclaimed leases may also be limited by the timeout value, configured with 'max-reclaim-time'. The message includes the number of reclaimed leases and the total time.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_LEASES_RECLAMATION_SLOW expired leases still exist after %1 reclamations

This warning message is issued when the server has been unable to reclaim all expired leases in a specified number of consecutive attempts. This indicates that the value of "reclaim-timer-wait-time" may be too high. However, if this is just a short burst of leases' expirations the value does not have to be modified and the server should deal with this in subsequent reclamation attempts. If this is a result of a permanent increase of the server load, the value of "reclaim-timer-wait-time" should be decreased, or the values of "max-reclaim-leases" and "max-reclaim-time" should be increased to allow processing more leases in a single cycle. Alternatively, these values may be set to 0 to remove the limitations on the number of leases and duration. However, this may result in longer periods of server's unresponsiveness to DHCP packets, while it processes the expired leases.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_LEASES_RECLAMATION_START starting reclamation of expired leases (limit = %1 leases or %2 milliseconds)

This debug message is issued when the allocation engine starts the reclamation of the expired leases. The maximum number of leases to be reclaimed and the timeout is included in the message. If any of these values is 0, it means "unlimited".

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_LEASES_RECLAMATION_TIMEOUT timeout of %1 ms reached while reclaiming IPv6 leases

This debug message is issued when the allocation engine hits the timeout for performing reclamation of the expired leases. The reclamation will now be interrupted and all leases which haven't been reclaimed, because of the timeout, will be reclaimed when the next scheduled reclamation is started. The argument is the timeout value expressed in milliseconds.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_LEASE_RECLAIM %1: reclaiming expired lease for prefix %2/%3

This debug message is issued when the server begins reclamation of the expired DHCPv6 lease. The reclaimed lease may either be an address lease or delegated prefix. The first argument provides the client identification information. The other arguments specify the prefix and the prefix length for the lease. The prefix length for address lease is equal to 128.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_LEASE_RECLAMATION_FAILED failed to reclaim the lease %1: %2

This error message is logged when the allocation engine fails to reclaim an expired lease. The reason for the failure is included in the message. The error may be triggered in the lease expiration hook or while performing the operation on the lease database.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_NO_MORE_EXPIRED_LEASES all expired leases have been reclaimed

This debug message is issued when the server reclaims all expired DHCPv6 leases in the database.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_RECLAIMED_LEASES_DELETE begin deletion of reclaimed leases expired more than %1 seconds ago

This debug message is issued when the allocation engine begins deletion of the reclaimed leases which have expired more than a specified number of seconds ago. This operation is triggered periodically according to the "flush-reclaimed-timer-wait-time" parameter. The "hold-reclaimed-time" parameter defines a number of seconds for which the leases are stored before they are removed.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_RECLAIMED_LEASES_DELETE_COMPLETE successfully deleted %1 expired-reclaimed leases

This debug message is issued when the server successfully deletes "expired-reclaimed" leases from the lease database. The number of deleted leases is included in the log message.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_RECLAIMED_LEASES_DELETE_FAILED deletion of expired-reclaimed leases failed: %1

This error message is issued when the deletion of "expired-reclaimed" leases from the database failed. The error message is appended to the log message.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_RENEW_HR allocating leases reserved for the client %1 as a result of Renew

This debug message is issued when the allocation engine tries to allocate reserved leases for the client sending a Renew message. The server will also remove any leases that the client is trying to renew that are not reserved for the client.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_RENEW_REMOVE_RESERVED %1: checking if existing client's leases are reseved for another client

This message is logged when the allocation engine finds leases for the client and will check if these leases are reserved for another client. If they are, they will not be renewed for the client requesting their renewal. The first argument includes the client identification information.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_RENEW_REMOVE_UNRESERVED dynamically allocating leases for the renewing client %1

This debug message is issued as the allocation engine is trying to dynamically allocate new leases for the renewing client. This is the case when the server couldn't renew any of the existing client's leases, e.g. because leased resources are reserved for another client.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_REUSE_EXPIRED_LEASE_DATA %1: reusing expired lease, updated lease information: %2

This message is logged when the allocation engine is reusing an existing lease. The details of the updated lease are printed. The first argument includes the client identification information.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_REVOKED_ADDR_LEASE address %1 was revoked from client %2 as it is reserved for client %3

This informational message is an indication that the specified IPv6 address was used by client A but it is now reserved for client B. Client A has been told to stop using it so that it can be leased to client B. This is a normal occurrence during conflict resolution, which can occur in cases such as the system administrator adding a reservation for an address that is currently in use by another client. The server will fully recover from this situation, but clients will change their addresses.

ALLOC_ENGINE_V6_REVOKED_PREFIX_LEASE Prefix %1/%2 was revoked from client %3 as it is reserved for client %4

This informational message is an indication that the specified IPv6 prefix was used by client A but it is now reserved for client B. Client A has been told to stop using it so that it can be leased to client B. This is a normal occurrence during conflict resolution, which can occur in cases such as the system administrator adding a reservation for an address that is currently in use by another client. The server will fully recover from this situation, but clients will change their prefixes.

ASIODNS Module

ASIODNS_FD_ADD_TCP adding a new TCP server by opened fd %1

A debug message informing about installing a file descriptor as a server. The file descriptor number is noted.

ASIODNS_FD_ADD_UDP adding a new UDP server by opened fd %1

A debug message informing about installing a file descriptor as a server. The file descriptor number is noted.

ASIODNS_FETCH_COMPLETED upstream fetch to %1(%2) has now completed

A debug message, this records that the upstream fetch (a query made by the resolver on behalf of its client) to the specified address has completed.

ASIODNS_FETCH_STOPPED upstream fetch to %1(%2) has been stopped

An external component has requested the halting of an upstream fetch. This is an allowed operation, and the message should only appear if debug is enabled.

ASIODNS_OPEN_SOCKET error %1 opening %2 socket to %3(%4)

The asynchronous I/O code encountered an error when trying to open a socket of the specified protocol in order to send a message to the target address. The number of the system error that caused the problem is given in the message.

ASIODNS_READ_DATA error %1 reading %2 data from %3(%4)

The asynchronous I/O code encountered an error when trying to read data from the specified address on the given protocol. The number of the system error that caused the problem is given in the message.

ASIODNS_READ_TIMEOUT receive timeout while waiting for data from %1(%2)

An upstream fetch from the specified address timed out. This may happen for any number of reasons and is most probably a problem at the remote server or a problem on the network. The message will only appear if debug is enabled.

ASIODNS_SEND_DATA error %1 sending data using %2 to %3(%4)

The asynchronous I/O code encountered an error when trying to send data to the specified address on the given protocol. The number of the system error that caused the problem is given in the message.

ASIODNS_SYNC_UDP_CLOSE_FAIL failed to close a DNS/UDP socket: %1

This is the same to ASIODNS_UDP_CLOSE_FAIL but happens on the "synchronous UDP server", mainly used for the authoritative DNS server daemon.

ASIODNS_TCP_ACCEPT_FAIL failed to accept TCP DNS connection: %1

Accepting a TCP connection from a DNS client failed due to an error that could happen but should be rare. The reason for the error is included in the log message. The server still keeps accepting new connections, so unless it happens often it's probably okay to ignore this error. If the shown error indicates something like "too many open files", it's probably because the run time environment is too restrictive on this limitation, so consider adjusting the limit using a tool such as ulimit. If you see other types of errors too often, there may be something overlooked; please file a bug report in that case.

ASIODNS_TCP_CLEANUP_CLOSE_FAIL failed to close a DNS/TCP socket on port cleanup: %1

A TCP DNS server tried to close a TCP socket (one created on accepting a new connection or is already unused) as a step of cleaning up the corresponding listening port, but it failed to do that. This is generally an unexpected event and so is logged as an error. See also the description of ASIODNS_TCP_CLOSE_ACCEPTOR_FAIL.

ASIODNS_TCP_CLOSE_ACCEPTOR_FAIL failed to close listening TCP socket: %1

A TCP DNS server tried to close a listening TCP socket (for accepting new connections) as a step of cleaning up the corresponding listening port (e.g., on server shutdown or updating port configuration), but it failed to do that. This is generally an unexpected event and so is logged as an error. See ASIODNS_TCP_CLOSE_FAIL on the implication of related system resources.

ASIODNS_TCP_CLOSE_FAIL failed to close DNS/TCP socket with a client: %1

A TCP DNS server tried to close a TCP socket used to communicate with a client, but it failed to do that. While closing a socket should normally be an error-free operation, there have been known cases where this happened with a "connection reset by peer" error. This might be because of some odd client behavior, such as sending a TCP RST after establishing the connection and before the server closes the socket, but how exactly this could happen seems to be system dependent (i.e, it's not part of the standard socket API), so it's difficult to provide a general explanation. In any case, it is believed that an error on closing a socket doesn't mean leaking system resources (the kernel should clean up any internal resource related to the socket, just reporting an error detected in the close call), but, again, it seems to be system dependent. This message is logged at a debug level as it's known to happen and could be triggered by a remote node and it would be better to not be too verbose, but you might want to increase the log level and make sure there's no resource leak or other system level troubles when it's logged.

ASIODNS_TCP_CLOSE_NORESP_FAIL failed to close DNS/TCP socket with a client: %1

A TCP DNS server tried to close a TCP socket used to communicate with a client without returning an answer (which normally happens for zone transfer requests), but it failed to do that. See ASIODNS_TCP_CLOSE_FAIL for more details.

ASIODNS_TCP_GETREMOTE_FAIL failed to get remote address of a DNS TCP connection: %1

A TCP DNS server tried to get the address and port of a remote client on a connected socket but failed. It's expected to be rare but can still happen. See also ASIODNS_TCP_READLEN_FAIL.

ASIODNS_TCP_READDATA_FAIL failed to get DNS data on a TCP socket: %1

A TCP DNS server tried to read a DNS message (that follows a 2-byte length field) but failed. It's expected to be rare but can still happen. See also ASIODNS_TCP_READLEN_FAIL.

ASIODNS_TCP_READLEN_FAIL failed to get DNS data length on a TCP socket: %1

A TCP DNS server tried to get the length field of a DNS message (the first 2 bytes of a new chunk of data) but failed. This is generally expected to be rare but can still happen, e.g, due to an unexpected reset of the connection. A specific reason for the failure is included in the log message.

ASIODNS_TCP_WRITE_FAIL failed to send DNS message over a TCP socket: %1

A TCP DNS server tried to send a DNS message to a remote client but failed. It's expected to be rare but can still happen. See also ASIODNS_TCP_READLEN_FAIL.

ASIODNS_UDP_ASYNC_SEND_FAIL Error sending UDP packet to %1: %2

The low-level ASIO library reported an error when trying to send a UDP packet in asynchronous UDP mode. This can be any error reported by send_to(), and can indicate problems such as too high a load on the network, or a problem in the underlying library or system. This packet is dropped and will not be sent, but service should resume normally. If you see a single occurrence of this message, it probably does not indicate any significant problem, but if it is logged often, it is probably a good idea to inspect your network traffic.

ASIODNS_UDP_CLOSE_FAIL failed to close a DNS/UDP socket: %1

A UDP DNS server tried to close its UDP socket, but failed to do that. This is generally an unexpected event and so is logged as an error.

ASIODNS_UDP_RECEIVE_FAIL failed to receive UDP DNS packet: %1

Receiving a UDP packet from a DNS client failed due to an error that could happen but should be very rare. The server still keeps receiving UDP packets on this socket. The reason for the error is included in the log message. This log message is basically not expected to appear at all in practice; if it does, there may be some system level failure and other system logs may have to be checked.

ASIODNS_UDP_SYNC_RECEIVE_FAIL failed to receive UDP DNS packet: %1

This is the same to ASIODNS_UDP_RECEIVE_FAIL but happens on the "synchronous UDP server", mainly used for the authoritative DNS server daemon.

ASIODNS_UDP_SYNC_SEND_FAIL Error sending UDP packet to %1: %2

The low-level ASIO library reported an error when trying to send a UDP packet in synchronous UDP mode. See ASIODNS_UDP_ASYNC_SEND_FAIL for more information.

ASIODNS_UNKNOWN_ORIGIN unknown origin for ASIO error code %1 (protocol: %2, address %3)

An internal consistency check on the origin of a message from the asynchronous I/O module failed. This may indicate an internal error; please submit a bug report.

ASIODNS_UNKNOWN_RESULT unknown result (%1) when IOFetch::stop() was executed for I/O to %2(%3)

An internal error indicating that the termination method of the resolver's upstream fetch class was called with an unknown result code (which is given in the message). Please submit a bug report.

This debug message indicates that the daemon stopped supporting specified command. This command can no longer be issued. If the command socket is open and this command is issued, the daemon will not be able to process it.

COMMAND_PROCESS_ERROR1 Error while processing command: %1

This warning message indicates that the server encountered an error while processing received command. Additional information will be provided, if available. Additional log messages may provide more details.

COMMAND_PROCESS_ERROR2 Error while processing command: %1

This warning message indicates that the server encountered an error while processing received command. The difference, compared to COMMAND_PROCESS_ERROR1 is that the initial command was well formed and the error occurred during logic processing, not the command parsing. Additional information will be provided, if available. Additional log messages may provide more details.

DHCP4_CLIENTID_IGNORED_FOR_LEASES %1: not using client identifier for lease allocation for subnet %2

This debug message is issued when the server is processing the DHCPv4 message for which client identifier will not be used when allocating new lease or renewing existing lease. The server is explicitly configured to not use client identifier to lookup existing leases for the client and will not record client identifier in the lease database. This mode of operation is useful when clients don't use stable client identifiers, e.g. multi stage booting. Note that the client identifier may be used for other operations than lease allocation, e.g. identifying host reservations for the client using client identifier. The first argument includes the client and transaction identification information. The second argument specifies the identifier of the subnet where the client is connected and for which this mode of operation is configured on the server.

DHCP4_DEACTIVATE_INTERFACE deactivate interface %1

This message is printed when DHCPv4 server disables an interface from being used to receive DHCPv4 traffic. Sockets on this interface will not be opened by the Interface Manager until interface is enabled.

DHCP4_DECLINE_LEASE Received DHCPDECLINE for addr %1 from client %2. The lease will be unavailable for %3 seconds.

This informational message is printed when a client received an address, but discovered that it is being used by some other device and notified the server by sending a DHCPDECLINE message. The server checked that this address really was leased to the client and marked this address as unusable for a certain amount of time. This message may indicate a misconfiguration in a network, as there is either a buggy client or more likely a device that is using an address that it is not supposed to. The server will fully recover from this situation, but if the underlying problem of a misconfigured or rogue device is not solved, this address may be declined again in the future.

DHCP4_DECLINE_LEASE_MISMATCH Received DHCPDECLINE for addr %1 from client %2, but the data doesn't match: received hwaddr: %3, lease hwaddr: %4, received client-id: %5, lease client-id: %6

This informational message means that a client attempted to report his address as declined (i.e. used by unknown entity). The server has information about a lease for that address, but the client's hardware address or client identifier does not match the server's stored information. The client's request will be ignored.

DHCP4_HOOK_BUFFER_SEND_SKIP %1: prepared response is dropped because a callout set the skip flag.

This debug message is printed when a callout installed on buffer4_send hook point set the skip flag. For this particular hook point, the setting of the flag by a callout instructs the server to drop the packet. Server completed all the processing (e.g. may have assigned, updated or released leases), but the response will not be send to the client.

DHCP4_HOOK_DECLINE_SKIP Decline4 hook callouts set status to DROP, ignoring packet.

This message indicates that the server received DHCPDECLINE message, it was verified to be correct and matching server's lease information. The server called hooks for decline4 hook point and one of the callouts set next step status to DROP. The server will now abort processing of the packet as if it was never received. The lease will continue to be assigned to this client.

DHCP4_HOOK_LEASE4_RELEASE_SKIP %1: lease was not released because a callout set the skip flag.

This debug message is printed when a callout installed on lease4_release hook point set the skip flag. For this particular hook point, the setting of the flag by a callout instructs the server to not release a lease.

This debug message is issued when the server is trying to send the response to the client. When the server is using an UDP socket to send the packet there are cases when this operation may be unsuccessful and no error message will be displayed. One such situation occurs when the server is unicasting the response to the 'ciaddr' of a DHCPINFORM message. This often requires broadcasting an ARP message to obtain the link layer address of the unicast destination. If broadcast ARP messages are blocked in the network, according to the firewall policy, the ARP message will not cause a response. Consequently, the response to the DHCPINFORM will not be sent. Since the ARP communication is under the OS control, Kea is not notified about the drop of the packet which it is trying to send and it has no means to display an error message.

DHCP6_DECLINE_FAIL_NO_LEASE Client %1 sent DECLINE for address %2, but there's no lease for it

This informational message is printed when a client tried to decline an address, but the server has no lease for said address. This means that the server's and client's perception of the leases are different. The likely causes of this could be: a confused (e.g. skewed clock) or broken client (e.g. client moved to a different location and didn't notice) or possibly an attack (a rogue client is trying to decline random addresses). The server will inform the client that his decline request was rejected and client should be able to recover from that.

DHCP6_DECLINE_LEASE Client %1 sent DECLINE for address %2 and the server marked it as declined. The lease will be recovered in %3 seconds.

This informational message indicates that the client leased an address, but discovered that it is being used by some other devicea and reported this to the server by sending a Decline message. The server marked the lease as declined. This likely indicates a misconfiguration in the network. Either the server is configured with an incorrect pool or there are devices that have statically assigned addresses that are supposed to be assigned by the DHCP server. Both client (will request a different address) and server (will recover the lease after decline-probation-time elapses) will recover automatically. However, if the underlying problem is not solved, the conditions leading to this message may reappear.

DHCP6_DECLINE_PROCESS_IA Processing of IA (IAID: %1) from client %2 started.

The argument includes the client and the transaction identification information.

DHCP6_UNKNOWN_MSG_RECEIVED received unknown message (type %d) on interface %2

This debug message is printed when server receives a message of unknown type. That could either mean missing functionality or invalid or broken relay or client. The list of formally defined message types is available here: http://www.iana.org/assignments/dhcpv6-parameters.

DHCP6_USING_SERVERID server is using server-id %1 and stores in the the file %2

This info message is logged when the server reads its server-id from a file or generates it. This message is a notification to the administrator what server-id will be used and where it is persisted. Typically, there is no need to modify the server id. However, it is possible to do it in the Kea configuration file. It is important to understand the implications of such modification. The clients will remember previous server-id, and will use it to extend their leases. As a result, they will have to go through a rebinding phase to re-acquire their leases and associate them with a new server id.

DHCPRSV Module

DHCPRSV_MEMFILE_CONVERTING_LEASE_FILES running LFC now to convert lease files to the current schema: %1.%2

A warning message issued when the server has detected lease files that need to be either upgraded or downgraded to match the server's schema, and that the server is automatically running the LFC process to perform the conversion.

A debug message issued when configuration manager clears the internal list of active interfaces. This doesn't prevent the server from listening to the DHCP traffic through open sockets, but will rather be used by Interface Manager to select active interfaces when sockets are re-opened.

DHCPSRV_CFGMGR_CONFIGURE_SERVERID server configuration includes specification of a server identifier

This warning message is issued when the server specified configuration of a server identifier. If this new configuration overrides an existing server identifier, this will affect existing bindings of the clients. Clients will use old server identifier when they renew their bindings. The server will not respond to those renews, and the clients will eventually transition to rebinding state. The server should reassign existing bindings and the clients will subsequently use new server identifier. It is recommended to not modify the server identifier, unless there is a good reason for it, to avoid increased number of renewals and a need for rebinding (increase of multicast traffic, which may be received by multiple servers).

DHCPSRV_CFGMGR_NO_SUBNET4 no suitable subnet is defined for address hint %1

DHCPSRV_CFGMGR_SOCKET_RAW_UNSUPPORTED use of raw sockets is unsupported on this OS, UDP sockets will be used

This warning message is logged when the user specified that the DHCPv4 server should use the raw sockets to receive the DHCP messages and respond to the clients, but the use of raw sockets is not supported on the particular environment. The raw sockets are useful when the server must respond to the directly connected clients which don't have an address yet. If the raw sockets are not supported by Kea on the particular platform, Kea will fall back to use of the IP/UDP sockets. The responses to the directly connected clients will be broadcast. The responses to relayed clients will be unicast as usual.

DHCPSRV_CFGMGR_SOCKET_TYPE_DEFAULT "dhcp-socket-type" not specified , using default socket type %1

This informational message is logged when the administrator hasn't specified the "dhcp-socket-type" parameter in configuration for interfaces. In such case, the default socket type will be used.

DHCPSRV_CFGMGR_SOCKET_TYPE_SELECT using socket type %1

This informational message is logged when the DHCPv4 server selects the socket type to be used for all sockets that will be opened on the interfaces. Typically, the socket type is specified by the server administrator. If the socket type hasn't been specified, the raw socket will be selected. If the raw socket has been selected but Kea doesn't support the use of raw sockets on the particular OS, it will use an UDP socket instead.

DHCPSRV_MEMFILE_NEEDS_DOWNGRADING version of lease file: %1 schema is later than version %2

A warning message issued when the schema of the lease file loaded by the server is newer than the memfile schema of the server. The server converts the lease data from newer schemas to its schema as it is read, therefore the lease information in use by the server will be correct. Note though, that any data data stored in newer schema fields will be dropped. What remains is for the file itself to be rewritten using the current schema.

DHCPSRV_MEMFILE_NEEDS_UPGRADING version of lease file: %1 schema is earlier than version %2

A warning message issued when the schema of the lease file loaded by the server pre-dates the memfile schema of the server. Note that the server converts the lease data from older schemas to the current schema as it is read, therefore the lease information in use by the server will be correct. What remains is for the file itself to be rewritten using the current schema.

DHCPSRV_MEMFILE_NO_STORAGE running in non-persistent mode, leases will be lost after restart

A warning message issued when writes of leases to disk have been disabled in the configuration. This mode is useful for some kinds of performance testing but should not be enabled in normal circumstances.

LOGIMPL_ABOVE_MAX_DEBUG debug level of %1 is too high and will be set to the maximum of %2

A message from the interface to the underlying logger implementation reporting that the debug level (as set by an internally-created string DEBUGn, where n is an integer, e.g. DEBUG22) is above the maximum allowed value and has been reduced to that value. The appearance of this message may indicate a programming error - please submit a bug report.

LOGIMPL_BAD_DEBUG_STRING debug string '%1' has invalid format

A message from the interface to the underlying logger implementation reporting that an internally-created string used to set the debug level is not of the correct format (it should be of the form DEBUGn, where n is an integer, e.g. DEBUG22). The appearance of this message indicates a programming error - please submit a bug report.

LOGIMPL_BELOW_MIN_DEBUG debug level of %1 is too low and will be set to the minimum of %2

A message from the interface to the underlying logger implementation reporting that the debug level (as set by an internally-created string DEBUGn, where n is an integer, e.g. DEBUG22) is below the minimum allowed value and has been increased to that value. The appearance of this message may indicate a programming error - please submit a bug report.

LOG Module

LOG_BAD_DESTINATION unrecognized log destination: %1

A logger destination value was given that was not recognized. The destination should be one of "console", "file", or "syslog".

LOG_BAD_SEVERITY unrecognized log severity: %1

A logger severity value was given that was not recognized. The severity should be one of "DEBUG", "INFO", "WARN", "ERROR", "FATAL" or "NONE".

LOG_BAD_STREAM bad log console output stream: %1

Logging has been configured so that output is written to the terminal (console) but the stream on which it is to be written is not recognized. Allowed values are "stdout" and "stderr".

LOG_DUPLICATE_MESSAGE_ID duplicate message ID (%1) in compiled code

During start-up, Kea detected that the given message identification had been defined multiple times in the Kea code. This indicates a programming error; please submit a bug report.

LOG_DUPLICATE_NAMESPACE line %1: duplicate $NAMESPACE directive found

When reading a message file, more than one $NAMESPACE directive was found. (This directive is used to set a C++ namespace when generating header files during software development.) Such a condition is regarded as an error and the read will be abandoned.

LOG_INPUT_OPEN_FAIL unable to open message file %1 for input: %2

The program was not able to open the specified input message file for the reason given.

LOG_INVALID_MESSAGE_ID line %1: invalid message identification '%2'

An invalid message identification (ID) has been found during the read of a message file. Message IDs should comprise only alphanumeric characters and the underscore, and should not start with a digit.

LOG_LOCK_TEST_MESSAGE this is a test message.

This is a log message used in testing.

LOG_NAMESPACE_EXTRA_ARGS line %1: $NAMESPACE directive has too many arguments

The $NAMESPACE directive in a message file takes a single argument, a namespace in which all the generated symbol names are placed. This error is generated when the compiler finds a $NAMESPACE directive with more than one argument.

LOG_NAMESPACE_INVALID_ARG line %1: $NAMESPACE directive has an invalid argument ('%2')

The $NAMESPACE argument in a message file should be a valid C++ namespace. This message is output if the simple check on the syntax of the string carried out by the reader fails.

LOG_NAMESPACE_NO_ARGS line %1: no arguments were given to the $NAMESPACE directive

The $NAMESPACE directive in a message file takes a single argument, a C++ namespace in which all the generated symbol names are placed. This error is generated when the compiler finds a $NAMESPACE directive with no arguments.

LOG_NO_MESSAGE_ID line %1: message definition line found without a message ID

Within a message file, message are defined by lines starting with a "%". The rest of the line should comprise the message ID and text describing the message. This error indicates the message compiler found a line in the message file comprising just the "%" and nothing else.

LOG_NO_MESSAGE_TEXT line %1: line found containing a message ID ('%2') and no text

Within a message file, message are defined by lines starting with a "%". The rest of the line should comprise the message ID and text describing the message. This error indicates the message compiler found a line in the message file comprising just the "%" and message identification, but no text.

LOG_NO_SUCH_MESSAGE could not replace message text for '%1': no such message

During start-up a local message file was read. A line with the listed message identification was found in the file, but the identification is not one contained in the compiled-in message dictionary. This message may appear a number of times in the file, once for every such unknown message identification.

There may be several reasons why this message may appear:

- The message ID has been mis-spelled in the local message file.

- The program outputting the message may not use that particular message (e.g. it originates in a module not used by the program).

- The local file was written for an earlier version of the Kea software and the later version no longer generates that message.

Whatever the reason, there is no impact on the operation of Kea.

LOG_OPEN_OUTPUT_FAIL unable to open %1 for output: %2

Originating within the logging code, the program was not able to open the specified output file for the reason given.

LOG_PREFIX_EXTRA_ARGS line %1: $PREFIX directive has too many arguments

Within a message file, the $PREFIX directive takes a single argument, a prefix to be added to the symbol names when a C++ file is created. This error is generated when the compiler finds a $PREFIX directive with more than one argument.

Note: the $PREFIX directive is deprecated and will be removed in a future version of Kea.

LOG_PREFIX_INVALID_ARG line %1: $PREFIX directive has an invalid argument ('%2')

Within a message file, the $PREFIX directive takes a single argument, a prefix to be added to the symbol names when a C++ file is created. As such, it must adhere to restrictions on C++ symbol names (e.g. may only contain alphanumeric characters or underscores, and may nor start with a digit). A $PREFIX directive was found with an argument (given in the message) that violates those restrictions.

Note: the $PREFIX directive is deprecated and will be removed in a future version of Kea.

LOG_READING_LOCAL_FILE reading local message file %1

This is an informational message output by Kea when it starts to read a local message file. (A local message file may replace the text of one or more messages; the ID of the message will not be changed though.)

LOG_READ_ERROR error reading from message file %1: %2

The specified error was encountered reading from the named message file.

LOG_UNRECOGNIZED_DIRECTIVE line %1: unrecognized directive '%2'

Within a message file, a line starting with a dollar symbol was found (indicating the presence of a directive) but the first word on the line (shown in the message) was not recognized.

LOG_WRITE_ERROR error writing to %1: %2

The specified error was encountered by the message compiler when writing to the named output file.

USER Module

USER_CHK_HOOK_LOAD_ERROR DHCP UserCheckHook could not be loaded: %1

This is an error message issued when the DHCP UserCheckHook could not be loaded. The exact cause should be explained in the log message. User subnet selection will revert to default processing.

USER_CHK_HOOK_UNLOAD_ERROR DHCP UserCheckHook an error occurred unloading the library: %1

This is an error message issued when an error occurs while unloading the UserCheckHook library. This is unlikely to occur and normal operations of the library will likely resume when it is next loaded.

USER_CHK_SUBNET4_SELECT_ERROR DHCP UserCheckHook an unexpected error occurred in subnet4_select callout: %1

This is an error message issued when the DHCP UserCheckHook subnet4_select hook encounters an unexpected error. The message should contain a more detailed explanation.

USER_CHK_SUBNET4_SELECT_REGISTRY_NULL DHCP UserCheckHook UserRegistry has not been created.

This is an error message issued when the DHCP UserCheckHook subnet4_select hook has been invoked but the UserRegistry has not been created. This is a programmatic error and should not occur.

USER_CHK_SUBNET6_SELECT_ERROR DHCP UserCheckHook an unexpected error occurred in subnet6_select callout: %1

This is an error message issued when the DHCP UserCheckHook subnet6_select hook encounters an unexpected error. The message should contain a more detailed explanation.

USER_CHK_SUBNET6_SELECT_REGISTRY_NULL DHCP UserCheckHook UserRegistry has not been created.

This is an error message issued when the DHCP UserCheckHook subnet6_select hook has been invoked but the UserRegistry has not been created. This is a programmatic error and should not occur.
