reading ARP table


I am new here!

I want to extract the ARP table from our PA-5000's.

At this moment, I can do this by using the CLI ("show arp all").

Is there another way to do this (by using SNMP or API)?

/api/?type=op&cmd=<show><arp></arp></show> gives me error 17

Kind regards!

Thanks a lot!

I guess I missed the "all" :-)

need to bump this

this is not possible with SNMP?

My PA is the only "router" in the network and I need something to query the ARP table with SNMP to match IP to MAC addresses. All Switches are L2 devices

Looks like PANOS doesn't respond to the two OIDs related to pulling the ARP/MAC table via SNMP:

IP-MIB::ipNetToPhysicalPhysAddress = No Such Object available on this agent at this OID

IP-MIB::ipNetToMediaPhysAddress = No Such Object available on this agent at this OID

L1 Bithead

Had similair request to read the ARP table by using SNMP.

Anyone an idea if and when OID . ipNetToMediaPhysAddress will be supported?

Best regards,

Really no reply on this? I was searching for this answer as well and was surprised to see this and nothing since may. You think this would be up in the list to get working.

I actually have a similar problem using an IPAM system like Infoblox or Bluecat.

Actually  . works here for me on 5.0.6

Also the subinterfaces are not listed in the MIB.

if you have the console access to the device, then its easier to findout the Rest call.

Just run the below command:

debug cli on

and then run the command which you want to request through Rest like below: To get Arp table

show arp all


<request cmd="op" cookie="1112336478312474" uid="500"><operations><show><arp><entry name='all'/></arp></show></operations></request>


Highligted text is your path to get the command.
