    3939|| 8. || lease_cmds || MPL2.0 || ISC || || This library provides an interface that can manipulate leases in an unified, safe way for all supported backends (memfile, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Cassandra). It allows things previously impossible: manipulate leases in memfile while Kea is running, sanity check changes, check lease existence and remove all leases belonging to specific subnet. It can also catch more obscure errors, like adding a lease with subnet-id that does not exist in the configuration or configuring a lease to use an address that is outside of the subnet to which it is supposed to belong. [[ | Documentation]] ||
    4040|| 9. || subnet_cmds || EULA (2) || ISC || || Extends remote management (REST API and control channel) to manage subnets and shared networks. Allows listing, getting, adding and deleting subnets and shared networks. Also allows making existing subnet to become a part of shared subnet and remove subnet from shared networks. [[ | Documentation]]
     41|| 10. || stats_cmds || MPL 2.0 || ISC || || Improves reporting of lease statistics when using a shared lease database backend with multiple Kea servers [[ | Documentation]]
     42|| 11. || radius || EULA || ISC || || Integration with RADIUS for access control and accounting are supported. Kea is able to send Access-Request messages and alter its behavior depending on the responses. Specific IP addresses may be assigned (if Framed-IP-Address or Framed-IPv6-Address is received), client can be assigned to specific pool (if Framed-Pool or Framed-IPv6-Pool is received) or denied service altogether (if Access-Reject is received). Kea can also send accounting messages to RADIUS accounting servers. As with other features, this supports both IPv4 and IPv6. [[ | Documentation]]
     43|| 12. || host_cache || EULA || ISC || || Some of the optional backends may be slow to respond. The host caching library creates a local cache on the Kea server of host reservations on the backend to improve performance. [[ | Documentation]]
     44|| 13. || high_availability || EULA || ISC || || Two Kea instances can now be configured to run as a pair to provide higher availability. Two modes are supported. In hot standby mode there is a primary instance handling all traffic and sending updates to its secondary partner. The secondary monitors the health of the primary and is able to take over automatically in case the primary fails. In load balancing mode both partners are active and are handling approximately half of the traffic traffic. In case of a failure of either server, the partner is able to take over responding to all traffic directed to both servers. Support for additional backup servers is implemented. The solution supports both IPv4 and IPv6 and can work with any backend, including memfile. Note that this is NOT an implementation of the IETF standard DHCPv4 failover (which does not support DHCPv6).[[ | Documentation]]
