Usage Guidelines

If the system receives a great number of ARP packets from the same source at a time, it needs to update ARP entries repeatedly, causing performance deterioration. To ensure system performance, you can enable ARP suppression. The system then only responds to ARP Request packets but does not update ARP entries.

If ARP suppression is enabled for all interfaces, ARP entries on some interfaces cannot be updated temporarily. ARP suppression is applicable to only VLANIF interfaces. By default, it always takes effect on VLANIF interfaces. It can be configured on other logical interfaces.

After the undo arp-suppress command is executed, ARP suppression is enabled only on VLANIF interfaces.
