Just as we saw modifying the caching time for ARP entries in the ARP table here. We can modify the default time that a sun Solaris system can hold the routing entries.

The default time for which a dynamically learnt Route entry in the routing table is 20mins (1200000ms)

To Display current Route holding time

To display the current time interval to hold a route entry

In Solaris 8/9/10

sunsolaris# ndd -get /dev/ip ip_ire_arp_interval
1200000

In earlier versions to Solaris 8

sunsolaris# ndd -get /dev/ip ip_ire_flush_interval

To modify the Route holding time 

This can be modified or reduced to a lower level. To modify the default time to say 15 mins

In Solaris 8/9/10

sunsolaris# ndd -set /dev/ip ip_ire_arp_interval 900000

In earlier versions to Solaris 8

sunsolaris# ndd -set /dev/ip ip_ire_flush_interval 900000
