NAME
arpsnmp - keep track of ethernet/ip address pairings SYNOPSIS
arpsnmp [ -d ] [ -f datafile ] [ -s sendmail_path ] [ -m addr ] file [ ... ] DESCRIPTION
Arpsnmp keeps track for ethernet/ip address pairings. It syslogs activity and reports certain changes via email. Arpsnmp reads information from a file (usually generated by snmpwalk(8)). The -d flag is used enable debugging. This also inhibits mailing the reports. Instead, they are sent to stderr. The -f flag is used to set the ethernet/ip address database filename. The default is arp.dat. (Debian) The -s flag is used to specify the path to the sendmail program. Any program that takes the option -odi and then text from stdin can be substituted. This is useful for redirecting reports to log files instead of mail. (Debian) The -m option is used to specify the e-mail address to which reports will be sent. By default, reports are sent to root on the local machine. Note that an empty arp.dat file must be created before the first time you run arpsnmp. REPORT MESSAGES

arpsnmp - keep track of ethernet/ip address pairings SYNOPSIS
arpsnmp [ -d ] [ -f datafile ] [ -e username ] [ -s username ] file [ ... ] DESCRIPTION
Arpsnmp keeps track for ethernet/ip address pairings. It syslogs activity and reports certain changes via email. Arpsnmp reads information from a file (usually generated by snmpwalk(8)). The -d flag is used enable debugging. This also inhibits mailing the reports. Instead, they are sent to stderr. The -f flag is used to set the ethernet/ip address database filename. The default is arp.dat. Note that an empty arp.dat file must be created before the first time you run arpsnmp. If the -e flag is used, arpsnmp sends e-mail messages to username rather than the default (root). If a single `-' character is given for the username, sending of e-mail is suppressed, but logging via syslog is still done as usual. (This can be useful during initial runs, to collect data without being flooded with messages about new stations.) If the -s flag is used, arpsnmp sends e-mail messages with username as the return address, rather than the default (root). REPORT MESSAGES
