I have been using netlink to dump and monitor for changes to the
forwarding/routing table and links. Can netlink be used to monitor changes
and dump the ARP table? I tried using NETLINK_ARPD (for example: socket
(AF_NETLINK, SOCK_RAW, NETLINK_ARPD). However, I cannot seem to
successfully request a dump using RTM_GETNEIGH. I can give more details of
the problems I'm having, but before doing this, I just want to know if what
I'm trying to do is possible?

Thanks,
