Feature Limitations

  • Proxy ARP does not take effect for gratuitous ARP packets.

  • Intra-VLAN proxy ARP and inter-VLAN proxy ARP determine whether VLAN information meets proxy requirements based on ARP entries matching source and destination IP addresses of packets. If no ARP entry matches the destination IP address of a packet, the switch broadcasts an ARP request in the VLAN (for intra-VLAN proxy ARP) or all sub-VLANs of the super-VLAN (for inter-VLAN proxy ARP) to learn the APR entry matching the destination IP address. When multiple switches on a network have proxy ARP enabled and a requested destination IP address does not exist, this ARP broadcast packet triggers the same proxy process on other switches. This cyclic proxy process will cause a broadcast storm.

  • CPCAR limits the rate of protocol packets of different services sent to the control plane, ensuring security of the control plane. A switch can set the default CPCAR values for the packets of each protocol. The CPCAR values of some protocol packets need to be adjusted based on the actual service scale and user network. If the CPCAR values are adjusted improperly, network services are affected. To adjust the CPCAR values of ARP Request and Reply packets, contact Huawei technical support engineers.
