RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for arpsnmp (redhat section 8)

ARPSNMP(8)			     System Manager's Manual			       ARPSNMP(8)

NAME
       arpsnmp - keep track of ethernet/ip address pairings

SYNOPSIS
       arpsnmp [ -d ] [ -f datafile ] file [ ...  ]

DESCRIPTION
       Arpsnmp keeps track for ethernet/ip address pairings. It syslogs activity and reports cer-
       tain changes via email.	Arpsnmp reads information from a file (usually generated by snmp-
       walk(1)).

       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.

REPORT MESSAGES
       (See the arpwatch(8) man page for details on the report messages generated by arpsnmp(8).)

FILES
       /usr/operator/arpwatch - default directory
       arp.dat - ethernet/ip address database
       ethercodes.dat - vendor ethernet block list
