arista.eos.eos_lacp_interfaces module – LACP interfaces resource module

Note

This module is part of the arista.eos collection (version 5.0.1).

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 arista.eos.

To use it in a playbook, specify: arista.eos.eos_lacp_interfaces.

New in version 1.0.0: of arista.eos

Synopsis

  • This module manages Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) attributes of interfaces on Arista EOS devices.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

list / elements=dictionary

A dictionary of LACP interfaces options.

name

string

Full name of the interface (i.e. Ethernet1).

port_priority

integer

LACP port priority for the interface. Range 1-65535.

timer

aliases: rate

string

Rate at which PDUs are sent by LACP. At fast rate LACP is transmitted once every 1 second. At normal rate LACP is transmitted every 30 seconds after the link is bundled.

Choices:

  • fast

  • normal

running_config

string

This option is used only with state parsed.

The value of this option should be the output received from the EOS device by executing the command show running-config | section ^interfaces.

The state parsed reads the configuration from running_config option and transforms it into Ansible structured data as per the resource module’s argspec and the value is then returned in the parsed key within the result.

state

string

The state of the configuration after module completion.

Choices:

  • merged ← (default)

  • replaced

  • overridden

  • deleted

  • parsed

  • rendered

  • gathered

Notes

Note

  • Tested against Arista EOS 4.24.6F

  • This module works with connection network_cli. See the EOS Platform Options.
