Yeah the lease default is 2 hours (7200 seconds). If this is a business, I
would increase that value to about 3 days personally. Just to cut down on
network chatter. Go with at least a day (86400). Second you can also define
how many lines you want to keep in your logs to save space. Default is 1000
I think, if you have only a handful of users, cut the DHCP log to 100. Or if
you MUST keep more log data, setup an old PC as a remote log server.
