Large amount of ARP/RARP traffic from one host

I use ntop to monitor my network. I have noticed that I have one server that consistently has a high amount of arp/rarp traffic 2.2 MBytes daily. The thing is this server doesn't do much. Cant figure out way, Can anyone point me in the right direction

2.2 MB is nothing; quite normal for a server. If the server processes infrequent nut numerous lock requests, such as DNS, then there will be a lot of arp traffic, as the ATP cache will expire between queries from a particular host.

What software are you running on the server in question?

Some network card drivers are rather chatty when it comes to ARP requests.
