NAME         top

       arptables-save — dump arptables rules to stdout (nft-based)

SYNOPSIS         top

       arptables-save [-M modprobe] [-c]

       arptables-save [-V]

DESCRIPTION         top

       arptables-save is used to dump the contents of an ARP Table in
       easily parseable format to STDOUT. Use I/O-redirection provided
       by your shell to write to a file.

       -M, --modprobe modprobe_program
              Specify the path to the modprobe program. By default,
              arptables-save will inspect /proc/sys/kernel/modprobe to
              determine the executable's path.

       -c, --counters
              Include the current values of all packet and byte counters
              in the output.

       -V, --version
              Print version information and exit.
