First there was DHC Leasequery (RFC4388), next DHCv6 Leasequery
(RFC5007), now we have DHCv6 Bulk Leasequery. And someone seems to be
proposing DHCPv4 bulk leasequery as well
RFC4388 S4.2 described reasons why SNMP was deemed inappropriate.
And if you look at the reasoning there, some of these are not even
valid anymore for bulk leasequeries. I remain unconvinced. A far
better solution would seem to be define a smaller MIB just for
querying leases so implementing it would be trivial. Bulk
leasequeries just underline the fact that SNMP and MIB data models are
being reinvented inside DHCP.
