Usage Guidelines

When IP packets trigger ARP Miss messages, the device generates temporary ARP entries and sends ARP Request packets to the destination network.
  • In the aging time of temporary ARP entries:
    • An IP packet that is received before the ARP Reply packet and matches a temporary ARP entry is discarded and triggers no ARP Miss message.
    • After receiving the ARP Reply packet, the device generates a correct ARP entry to replace the temporary entry.
  • When temporary ARP entries age out, the device clears them. If no ARP entry matches the IP packets forwarded by the device, ARP Miss messages are triggered again and temporary ARP entries are regenerated. This process continues.

When ARP Miss attacks occur on the device, you can run the arp-fake expire-time command to extend the aging time of temporary ARP entries to reduce the frequency of triggering ARP Miss messages and minimize the impact on the device.


# Set the aging time of temporary ARP entries to 10 seconds on VLANIF10.
