Detailed Description

Checks if a lease fetched from the other server should be synchronized into the local lease database.

In a simple case when a pair of the servers has only one relationship, a server recovering from a crash fetches all leases from the partner during the database synchronization. If a server participates in more than one relationship or the server is connected to a server having more relationships a decision whether a received lease should be stored in a database has to be made based on the filtering rules implemented in this class.

Suppose there are two relationships configured for the server and each relationship runs the DHCP service for a subset of subnets. When the server is synchronizing the lease database for one of the relationships it receives all leases from its partner. Some of them belong to this relationship and some belong to the other relationship. The server must only accept the leases belonging to the former relationship and discard the remaining ones. Accepting all leases could affect lease database integrity for the second relationship.

This class implements a simple mechanism to determine whether a lease should be accepted or discarded during the synchronization. It iterates over the configured subnets and checks which of them belong to the current relationship. It next records their IDs. For each received lease it compares the subnet identifier with the recorded list. If the lease matches the list it is accepted, otherwise it is discarded by the HAService.

If none of the configured subnets contain associations with the HA relationships the class accepts all leases. It helps to simplify HA configurations with only one relationship. Such configurations typically lack subnet/HA associations in the subnet specification.

Member Function Documentation

◆ apply()

void isc::ha::LeaseSyncFilter::apply ( )

Applies filtering rules based on the current server configuration.

This function should be called before each synchronization in case any subnets have been added or removed. It ensures that the filter is using the most up-to-date configuration.

◆ shouldSync()

bool isc::ha::LeaseSyncFilter::shouldSync ( const dhcp::LeasePtr & lease) const

Checks if the lease should be accepted or discarded.

The lease is accepted when the lease subnet belongs to this relationship or when none of the subnets have explicit associations with the configured HA relationships.
