I regularly used to lower the ARP timeout to 5 minutes (to match the
mac-address-table aging limit) on devices running on ATM LAN-E segments and
saw no ill effects.

Cisco default ARP timeout is 4 hours. Do anyone change that to
something shorter in a provider environment for customer with Ethernet
connectivity? What is a good value to set it to?
Are there any impacts for lowering the timeout? Other than higher CPU
util for doing ARP a lot more on the router?
