arista.eos.eos_lldp_interfaces – LLDP 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_lldp_interfaces.

New in version 1.0.0: of arista.eos

Synopsis

  • This module manages Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) attributes of interfaces on Arista EOS devices.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
config
list / elements=dictionary
A dictionary of LLDP interfaces options.
name
string
Full name of the interface (i.e. Ethernet1).
receive
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Enable/disable LLDP RX on an interface.
transmit
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Enable/disable LLDP TX on an interface.
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 ^interface.
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
  • gathered
  • rendered
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.
