Excessive ARP Requests HSRP

Evan Roggenkamp
Level 1
Level 1

I have a wireshark here of an ASR 9010 which is setting off triggers in a monitoring system for sending a bunch of ARP requests that look like gratuitous ARPS for reasons I can't seem to determine. It is going on like this continually. I am looking for a little assistance in determining why.

 

router hsrp
 interface BVI17201
  address-family ipv4
   hsrp 1
    preempt
    priority 100
    address 172.16.1.1
   !
  !
 !
 interface BVI17208
  address-family ipv4
   hsrp 1
    preempt
    priority 100
    address 172.16.8.1
   !

BVI17201 is up, line protocol is up

hsrp would send grat arps for its vip, and it should there is a standard timer on that with some jitter to keep informing the switches of where the mac is found.
