What are two problems that can be caused by a large number of ARP request and reply messages? (Choose two.)
- A large number of ARP request and reply messages may slow down the switching process, leading the switch to make many changes in its MAC table.
- The ARP request is sent as a broadcast, and will flood the entire subnet.
- Switches become overloaded because they concentrate all the traffic from the attached subnets.
- All ARP request messages must be processed by all nodes on the local network.
- The network may become overloaded because ARP reply messages have a very large payload due to the 48-bit MAC address and 32-bit IP address that they contain.
