Synopsis

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

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
config
dictionary
LACP global options.
system
dictionary
LACP system options.
priority
integer
The system priority to use in LACP negotiations.
Lower value is higher priority.
Refer to vendor documentation for valid values.
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 ^lacp.
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
  • deleted
  • parsed
  • rendered
  • gathered
The state of the configuration after module completion.
