BIG-IP send gratuitous ARP when force standby?

Hi,

 

I want you to tell me.

Does BIG-IP send gratuitous ARP when the active unit is forcibly switched back to the standby state after a failover? (ex. run sys failover standby)

Also, can I check the log to see if gratuitous ARP has been sent?

 

Thank you and best regards,

Hi, Lidev​

I read this.

https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K15858

"When the BIG-IP system becomes active, gratuitous ARP requests are also sent for floating self IP addresses and virtual IP addresses."

Do you think BIG-IP will send GARP when you type "run sys failover standby" command?

stanby member no, but the unit becoming active will send GARPs .

OK. Thanks.
