FWSM arp table maximum size

I am using a VPN server which needs to proxy-arp for private interface traffic to assigned client pools. This is necessitated by the clustered aspect of the VPN service.

I'm concerned that this will load my FWSM's arp table. The host 6509 has amaximum arp table size of 30,000 (I believe), but does anyone know the limitaiton of the FWSM?

Re: FWSM arp table maximum size

I think FWSM can use the arp table of host device, so the arp table size might be the same.

Hi

AFAIK the FWSM has it's own arp table with 64K entries across all contexts.

Attached is a link to the fixed system resources for the FWSM which includes the arp figures.
