I got only one response to my query. It was from Audrey Taylor
Here is my original:
I need some info on the arp cache size for Solaris 2.5 (or a pointer
to where this information can be found). Specifically:
What is the default size of the cache?
What is the default time-out for entries in the cache?
How can these two parameters be read?
How can we change these parameters?
Thanks. Will summarize.
And Audrey's reply:
An ARP entry that is not completeed within 5 minutes is removed, and
entries not in use are flushed every 20 minutes. TThe variables
ip_ire_cleanup_variable and ip_ire_flush_variable determine these
values ( in /dev/ip ). Use ndd to view or chnage these values e.g. ndd
-set /dev/ip ip_ire_flush_interval <n>.
You can also view the arp cache from /dev/arp using ndd:-
ndd -get /dev/ip arp_cache_report
That seemed to work, but can anyone tell me what the numbers are in
units of? (Man page reads: "The meanings of many ndd parameters make
sense only if you understand how the driver is implemented.")
