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.
