    By default the alteon switch does an arp for all ip-addresses it sees. The
    result is that all the mac-addresses are stored in the arp-table. If you
    have a connection to a network with a lot of clients this will result in an
    overflow of the arp-table. The way to reduce this is to define local

    When you define local networks (/cfg/ip/local) you configure the networks
    the Alteon switch has a direct connection to. So all the defined interface
    have to be included in the local network configuration. I you have defined
    static routes than be sure these are included in the local network as well.

    Hope this resolves your problem.
