arista.eos.eos_lacp_interfaces – LACP interfaces resource module

Note

This plugin is part of the arista.eos collection.

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 Choices/Defaults 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.
rate
string
    Choices:
  • fast
  • normal
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.
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
    Choices:
  • merged ←
  • replaced
  • overridden
  • deleted
  • parsed
  • rendered
  • gathered
The state of the configuration after module completion.

Notes

Note

  • Tested against Arista EOS 4.20.10M

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