Spirent TestCenter: What is the max ARP entries, MAC table size for the different modules?

  • Spirent TestCenter Application
  • There is no clear limit defined other than the device scale limits we have for the various platforms.
  • ARP entries are learnt and active till the expiry timeout and is mainly dependent on the memory available in the system on how many entries you can learn.
  • If the issue is concerning RFC-2889 testing of a DUT, this does not require any MAC table on Spirent side. 
    • Spirent simply sends data with different MAC addresses and the DUT will need to populate its MAC table.
    • There is no requirement for the sender to maintain any MAC table, the test is on the DUT not the sender of the traffic.
