arp clear retry 1

Unanswered Question
Sep 8th, 2010


I have found "arp clear retry 1" command in 7606 configuration. What does this command mean? I couldn't find any explanation in reference guide. Software version is s72033-advipservicesk9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF9.bin.

I have this problem too.

Hello Vijay,

Thank you for reply!

Do I understand correct that arp cache will be cleared every 1 minute when this command is configured?

I didn't make my first post clear. This is a new implementation of the ARP cache clearing

After "clear arp", the arp/adj entries won't be immediately removed. ARP will send out arp request first, arp/adj entries will be refreshed if the arp response
is received. Otherwise, if ARP response is not received in a number of arp requests (configurable), the arp/adj entries will be deleted.

The command is

switch(config)#arp clear retry ?
  <1-50>  count

Default is 2.
