- Clavister cOS Core all versions
If i use the CLI command "ifstat -restart <interface>" on an interface, is cOS Core then sending out a Gratuitous ARP for the interface IP when the restart is complete?
Yes, cOS Core sends out a gratuitous ARP when this command is issued similar to when the system starts up.
If there is a problem in the network and using this command (or arp -notify <ip> <interface>) solve the problem temporary it could be an indication of a network problem or possible IP conflict.
Note: this only applies to the interface address, not Proxy ARP or ARP Published IP addresses.
