Edit - if you want to save this for prosperity, issue this:

Hello and welcome to LQ.

I took a different meaning on this question so I went to find the answer. Not sure I do know where arp stores the data exactly. Normally it is called arp cache but that seems to include both static and dynamic. Since arp is so old, I'd guess some whacky location for the cache is inside the program and not an externally searchable location. But that is just my guess.

Of course some extra idea's to look at and view it. http://askubuntu.com/questions/40679...cal-network-la

As far as I know the arp cache is /proc/net/arp

Thanks michaelk. I couldn't find that. It lead me to this statement so it is as I suspected, a built in process.


"This holds an ASCII readable dump of the kernel ARP table used for address resolutions. It will show both dynamically learned and preprogrammed ARP entries. The format is: "

http://linux.die.net/man/5/proc

Much more info on that link too.
