The following commands are available to configure LLDP:
- lldp enable¶
Enable the support for the LLDP protocol.
- lldp hostname HOSTNAME...¶
Set the system name that is passed to the neighbors. By default, the system name is passed, configured with the
- lldp description DESCRIPTION...¶
Set the system description that is passed to the neighbors. By default, the string NFWare virtual Carrier Grade NAT is passed.
- lldp portidsubtype <mac|name>¶
Set the type of the interface identifier that is passed to the neighbors. By default, the MAC address is used.
- lldp tx-interval (1-3600)¶
Set the interval between sending the LLDP PDUs in seconds. By default, the message is sent once every 30 seconds.
- lldp hold-multiplier (2-10)¶
Set the LLDP hold miltiplier. This parameter is used to calculate the LLDP TTL. The LLDP TTL is calculated as the product of the
hold-multiplier. By default, this parameter is set to 4, so the default LLDP TTL is 120 seconds.
- lldp update¶
Send the LLDP PDU without the
tx-intervaldelay. The command can be used to immediately send updated information about the system to your neighbors after a configuration change.
