If you have (failover) senario where adjusting the arp cache timeout on a router interface (from default of 4 hours) could prove beneficial is there a recommened minimal threshold to not go below in seconds?

There is a setup with a vendor that when they failover to a backup link sometimes we have to manually clear arp on our primary router.

I wonder if the "arp probe interval" under the specific interface where arp needs to be cleared would be a good choice?
