Setting up a Report.ARP activity

Table of contents
No headers

Activity tab:

Create a new Activity and select Report.ARP table as the Activity Type:

Leave the other options on this tab at their defaults.

 

Time tab:

Select, for instance, "Every hour" as the Recurring option in the Times box to run the activity every hour.

Leave all other options on this tab at their defaults.

 

Devices tab:

Select the Devices you want to report on from your CatTools Host.

 

E-mail tab:

Set preferences for reporting on this Activity.

 

Options tab:

 

Use alternate command: tick box activates command entry field, to allow you to set an alternate command if the default command issued by CatTools does not produce the correct results. This may be useful if you have some Devices not yet supported in the CatTools default device list. The field is not checked by default.

 

Days until entries expire: tick box activates associated numeric field (whos default is 30 days) . Here you may enter the number of days you want entries to remain in the table. Every time this activity is run, the existing MAC address table entries that are older than the expire time will be removed. This keeps the table to a workable size.

 

Resolve IP addresses to host names: tick box activates resolution of host names to IP addresses for report. Each time the activity runs, the program will scan the table for entries that have a blank host name field. A list of IP addresses will be created and then resolved in bulk. The resolver will attempt up to 100 DNS lookups at once. If a hostname is returned for the IP address, the table will be updated.
