BGP: kernel arpresolve



  • Hello

    after I have implement BGP with my own AS, my SystemLog has many entries per second:

    kernel: arpresolve: can't allocate llinfo for <bgp neighbor-ip=""> on em3.</bgp>
    

    The Status of openbgpd seems fine:

    BGP neighbor is <bgp neighbor-ip="">, remote AS 8888, Multihop (5)

  • Were you ever able to figure out the cause of this?

    I'm experiencing the same issue.
