Monitoring the arp table

Man page of netlink says:
---------------------------------
NETLINK_ARPD
For managing the arp table in user space.
----------------------------------

Is it possible to monitor arp table using Netlink? or it's just for manipulating?

Which OS in which version are we talking about, and which command exactly (really just netlink? If so, which man section)?
