I was able to change the default arp cache timeout from 1800 to 3600.

 

as shown below

 

 

set system setting arp-cache-timeout
<value> <60-65535> ARP cache timeout interval, in seconds

> set system setting arp-cache-timeout 3600

ARP cache timeout:3600

mparmar2@BMS> show arp all

maximum of entries supported : 1500
default timeout: 3600 seconds
total ARP entries in table : 12
total ARP entries shown : 12
status: s - static, c - complete, e - expiring, i - incomplete

interface ip address hw address port status ttl

Is this setting visible anywhere in the GUI?

 

Other than the "show arp" command, where is this visible in the system config?

 

From my testing, it appears this setting is not stored in the config, and restoring a config to a replacement unit does not preserve this setting.

L2 Linker
> show system setting arp-cache-timeout

Server error : You need superuser privileges to do that

The cli superreader level access should be sufficient to display this setting, and not require cli superuser.    The value can be found in a "show arp loopback" anyway.

L2 Linker

Also, the default state should still return a value.  It does not:

> show system setting arp-cache-timeout

Server error : Command succeeded with no output

Not visible in GUI

 

CLI --- show arp all   shows the value
