Description William A. Mahaffey III 2011-11-16 10:07:04 EST
Description of problem:See above


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):libvirt.x86_64 0.8.3-10.fc14


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.
2.
3.
  
Actual results: libvirt spawns an instance of dnsmasq to handle the bridge from VM's to host. That instance has a finite lease time, about 25 min. consequently, I am getting lots of messages in my syslog file about lease renewals, floods that file, washed other possibly important stuff out of view of a tail, etc. The lease time should be infinite, or at least longer than 25 min.


Expected results:longer lease times, maybe daily or weekly ....


Additional info: example, from a couple of days back:

these are pretty much useless, unimportant, longer leases would cut them down ....

Sorry for not addressing this bug, but F14 is EOL now, so I'm closing this
report. Please reopen if this is still relevant in a more recent fedora.
