 From my experience, arpwatch doesn't use much system resources at all. 
  I haven't looked under its hood to see how it is implemented, but it 
should just be looking for changes/additions to the arp tables and doing 
a callback which checks the current .dat file containing bindings.

The suggestion of using arpwatch is mainly due to reliability.  It would 
provide a persistent and accurate mechanism to pull in any changes that 
have occurred in the arp tables, which would include (much more than) 
the IP<->MAC bindings for the VMs as they broadcast their ARP requests.
