How to disable ARP movements in the log

Wondering what the messages regarding ARP movements are in your logs?
Code:
arp: 192.168.1.14 moved from 00:11:22:33:44:55 to 00:11:22:33:44:66 on igb0

Well, it's nothing terribly important. It's for the Apple protocol used for auto discovery. You can disable the messages in your logs by creating the following tunable.

Go to System > Tunables > Add Tunable

Variable: net.link.ether.inet.log_arp_movements
Value: 0
Type: Sysctl

And that's it! No more ARP movement messages.

Thank you
Nice, the ARP movement is a pain and it has been annoying to receive emails over them. I know my network does not have duplicate IP addresses now I don't have to hear about it.
