Set the Timeout for Dynamic ARP Entries

You can globally set an aging time (time-out value) for dynamically learned ARP entries. The new value applies only to ARP entries that are dynamically learned after the new value is set. Previously existing ARP entries expire after the previously configured aging time. You can specify an ARP time-out value of from 1 through 1200 seconds.

To set the time-out for dynamic ARP entries by using the CLI:

At the command prompt, type:

  • set arpparam -timeout <positive_integer>]
  • show arpparam

Example:

> set arpparam -timeout 500
 Done

To set the time-out for dynamic ARP entries to its default value by using the CLI:

At the command prompt, type:

  • unset arpparam
  • show arpparam

Example:

> unset arpparam
 Done

To set the time-out for dynamic ARP entries by using the GUI:

Navigate to System > Network, in the Settings group, click Configure ARP Global Parameters, and set the ARP Table Entry Timeout parameter.
