Summary0004387: Addrwatch: This is used to monitor network and log discovered ethernet/ip pairings.
DescriptionMain features of addrwatch:

- IPv4 and IPv6 address monitoring
- Monitoring multiple network interfaces with one daemon
- Monitoring of VLAN tagged (802.1Q) packets.
- Output to stdout, plain text file, syslog, sqlite3 db, MySQL db
- IP address usage history preserving output/logging

Addrwatch is extremely useful in networks with IPv6 autoconfiguration (RFC4862) enabled. It allows to track IPv6 addresses of hosts using IPv6 privacy extensions (RFC4941).

Addrwatch do not keep persistent network pairings state but instead logs all the events that allow ethernet/ip pairing discovery. For IPv4 it is ARP requests, ARP replies and ARP ACD (Address Conflict Detection) packets. For IPv6 it uses ICMPv6 Neighbor Discovery and (DAD) Duplicate Address Detection packets (Neighbor Solicitations, Neighbor Advertisements).
