ARP broadcast

I am looking at my Wireshark trace and I see the IP address (RVI from the Juniper switch core) 10.10.1.1 sending many broadcast to several IP addresses within its subnet, including 10.10.1.100, 10.10.1.120, 10.10.1.121, 10.10.1.200, 10.10.1.205. What does it mean?

It means your juniper switch is trying to find the MAC address that is associated with those IP addresses.
