A lot of ARP-requests

Hello Forum,

I noticed a lot of ARP-requests from my openwrt-firewall. Mostly asking for always the same Adress (which is my Linux System running in a VM). I am asking myself if this is quite usual, or if there is something strange.
Can anyone help to find a reason ?

thanks in advice

Do you have a loop in your network topology?
So maybe this is an ARP Broadcast storm.

How many per minute per host on average?

about 10 per minutes for that certain host

That's not a lot. I was assuming you were going to say hundreds or thousands a second.


Thanks a lot. So, there is nothing to worry about
