Hi,

Many thanks for your suggestions.

Maybe I was not clear enough. With `dhcp-range=2601:647:4d01:fbf::,ra-names` in 
the config causes 'top' to show a lot of CPU used (>90%):
```
19492 dnsmasq   20   0   11076   2536   2228 R  93.4   0.1 815:27.43 
/usr/sbin/dnsmasq -x /run/dnsmasq/dnsmasq.pid -u dnsmasq -r 
/run/dnsmasq/resolv.conf -7 /etc/dnsmasq.d,.dpkg-dist,.dpkg-old,.dpkg-new 
--local-service
```
AND tcpdump shows a barrage of RAs being advertised:
```
06:39:00.390680 IP6 fe80::dea6:32ff:fe02:b43d > ff02::1: ICMP6, router 
advertisement, length 88
06:39:00.391455 IP6 fe80::dea6:32ff:fe02:b43d > ff02::1: ICMP6, router 
advertisement, length 88
06:39:00.392017 IP6 fe80::dea6:32ff:fe02:b43d > ff02::1: ICMP6, router 
advertisement, length 88
06:39:00.392564 IP6 fe80::dea6:32ff:fe02:b43d > ff02::1: ICMP6, router 
advertisement, length 88
06:39:00.393103 IP6 fe80::dea6:32ff:fe02:b43d > ff02::1: ICMP6, router 
advertisement, length 88
```
- Please look at the timestamps here
- Milliseconds apart 

I've replied to everything else in line. I guess it's going to be time to dig 
into the source code here if nothing else in my config looks outside the 
ordinary.

Cheers,
Cooper

This seems to be a default with the raspbian install - There is nothing in 
/etc/dnsmasq.d
```
cooper@home:~ $ find /etc/dnsmasq.d
/etc/dnsmasq.d
/etc/dnsmasq.d/README
```

Removing these and running the daemon has no effect.
```
31737 dnsmasq   20   0    2244    120      0 R  85.8   0.0   0:15.87 
./src/dnsmasq -x /run/dnsmasq/dnsmasq.pid -u dnsmasq -r 
/run/dnsmasq/resolv.conf --local-service
```

- This is because I added the `quiet-ra` option 
- Otherwise it's just 10000s `dnsmasq-dhcp[19424]: RTR-ADVERT(eth0.69) 
2601:647:4d01:fbf::` lines in logs

- This is a default in the raspbian dnsmasq install
