DescriptionIndeni will alert when the number of ARP entries stored by a device is nearing the allowed limit.
Remediation StepsIdentify the cause of the large ARP table. If it is due to a legitimate cause, such as a high number of hosts visible on the available networks, please contact your technical support provider.
How does this work?This script runs the "/config/switchCapIpARPMaxEnt" through the Alteon API gateway.
Why is this important?It is important to track the ARP table of any networking device. For Alteon, this extremely crucial to track as having a full ARP table indicates a saturation of hosts within the subnet and runs the risk of having routing issues.
Without Indeni how would you find this?An administrator would need to log in to the device and run a CLI command or run the API command "/config/switchCapIpARPMaxEnt".
