Looks like eth0 is sending out a DHCPREQUEST (i.e. requesting an IP from the
network) roughly every 10-15 seconds. Sounds like your local dhclient is
misconfigured.

Strange because there have been no changes (other than updates) on
this machine for weeks. And it just started doing this.

The daemon log is being filled with the same stuff.
the avihi-daemon was just updated and it's still doing the same thing!!

Maybe it's reboot time..the system has been up for a couple of days.

It could actually be a change with the DHCP server on the network, it could be
giving out leases that are already expired or something. Still, it's
definitely a DHCP problem.

Yeah, avahi does a few things everytime a network connection comes up and goes
down, DBUS might as well. It looks like your network connection on eth0 is
bouncing quite a bit.

You might try restarting the network on the machine.

I tried that...but then decided a reboot was in order. That seems to
have fixed it...but I am not sure what the problem was..with the daemon
( which coincidentally got updated) or something else .
