Description :
The arpwatch package contains arpwatch and arpsnmp.  Arpwatch and
arpsnmp are both network monitoring tools.  Both utilities monitor
Ethernet or FDDI network traffic and build databases of Ethernet/IP
address pairs, and can report certain changes via email.

Install the arpwatch package if you need networking monitoring devices
which will automatically keep track of the IP addresses on your
