This module is part of the community.network collection (version 4.0.1).

You might already have this collection installed if you are using the ansible package. It is not included in ansible-core. To check whether it is installed, run ansible-galaxy collection list.

To install it, use: ansible-galaxy collection install community.network.

To use it in a playbook, specify: community.network.ce_bfd_view.

Synopsis

  • Manages BFD session view configuration on HUAWEI CloudEngine devices.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

admin_down

boolean

Enables the BFD session to enter the AdminDown state. By default, a BFD session is enabled. The default value is bool type.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

description

string

Specifies the description of a BFD session. The value is a string of 1 to 51 case-sensitive characters with spaces.

detect_multi

string

Specifies the local detection multiplier of a BFD session. The value is an integer that ranges from 3 to 50.

local_discr

string

Specifies the local discriminator of a BFD session. The value is an integer that ranges from 1 to 16384.

min_rx_interval

string

Specifies the minimum interval for sending BFD packets. The value is an integer that ranges from 50 to 1000, in milliseconds.

min_tx_interval

string

Specifies the minimum interval for receiving BFD packets. The value is an integer that ranges from 50 to 1000, in milliseconds.

remote_discr

string

Specifies the remote discriminator of a BFD session. The value is an integer that ranges from 1 to 4294967295.

session_name

string / required

Specifies the name of a BFD session. The value is a string of 1 to 15 case-sensitive characters without spaces.

state

string

Determines whether the config should be present or not on the device.

Choices:

  • present ← (default)

  • absent

tos_exp

string

Specifies a priority for BFD control packets. The value is an integer ranging from 0 to 7. The default value is 7, which is the highest priority.

wtr_interval

string

Specifies the WTR time of a BFD session. The value is an integer that ranges from 1 to 60, in minutes. The default value is 0.

Notes

Note

  • This module requires the netconf system service be enabled on the remote device being managed.

  • Recommended connection is netconf.

  • This module also works with local connections for legacy playbooks.
