Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

If many users send a large number of ARP packets to a device at the same time, or attackers send bogus ARP packets to the device, the following problems occur:
  • Many CPU resources are consumed to process a large number of ARP packets. The device learns many invalid ARP entries, which exhaust ARP entry resources and prevent the device from learning ARP entries for ARP packets from authorized users. Consequently, communication of authorized users is interrupted.
  • Bogus ARP packets modify ARP entries on the device. As a result, authorized users cannot communicate.

To avoid the preceding problems, enable strict ARP learning on the gateway. This function indicates that the device learns only ARP entries for ARP Reply packets in response to ARP Request packets sent by itself. In this way, the device can defend against most ARP attacks.


The configuration on an interface takes precedence over the global configuration.
