Detailed Description

An allocator offering addresses in a random order.

This allocator uses IPRangePermutation to select random addresses or delegated prefixes from the pools. It guarantees that all offered addresses are unique (do not repeat).

The allocator also randomly picks pools to ensure that the leases are offered uniformly from the entire subnet rather than from the same pool until it exhausts. When all pools exhaust, the allocator resets their permutations and begins offering leases from these pools again.
