Synopsis

  • Manages LLDP configuration on HUAWEI CloudEngine switches.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

bind_name

string

Binding interface name.

fast_count

integer

The number of LLDP messages sent to the neighbor nodes by the specified device.

hold_multiplier

integer

Time multiplier for device information in neighbor devices.

interval

integer

Frequency at which LLDP advertisements are sent (in seconds).

lldpenable

string

Set global LLDP enable state.

Choices:

  • enabled

  • disabled

management_address

string

The management IP address of LLDP.

mdn_notification_interval

integer

Delay time for sending MDN neighbor information change alarm.

mdnstatus

string

Set global MDN enable state.

Choices:

  • rxOnly

  • disabled

notification_interval

integer

Suppression time for sending LLDP alarm.

restart_delay

integer

Specifies the delay time of the interface LLDP module from disabled state to re enable.

state

string

Manage the state of the resource.

Choices:

  • present ← (default)

  • absent

transmit_delay

integer

Delay time for sending LLDP messages.

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.
