cisco.iosxr.iosxr_lacp_interfaces module – LACP interfaces resource module

Note

This module is part of the cisco.iosxr collection (version 3.0.0).

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 cisco.iosxr.

To use it in a playbook, specify: cisco.iosxr.iosxr_lacp_interfaces.

New in version 1.0.0: of cisco.iosxr

Synopsis

  • This module manages Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) attributes of interfaces on IOS-XR devices.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

list / elements=dictionary

A dictionary of LACP interfaces options.

churn_logging

string

Specifies the parameter for logging of LACP churn events.

Valid only for ether-bundles.

Mode ‘actor’ logs actor churn events only.

Mode ‘partner’ logs partner churn events only.

Mode ‘both’ logs actor and partner churn events only.

Choices:

  • actor

  • partner

  • both

collector_max_delay

integer

Specifies the collector max delay to be signaled to the LACP partner.

Valid only for ether-bundles.

Refer to vendor documentation for valid values.

name

string

Name/Identifier of the interface or Ether-Bundle.

period

integer

Specifies the rate at which packets are sent or received.

For ether-bundles, this specifies the period to be used by its member links.

Refer to vendor documentation for valid values.

switchover_suppress_flaps

integer

Specifies the time for which to suppress flaps during a LACP switchover.

Valid only for ether-bundles.

Refer to vendor documentation for valid values.

system

dictionary

This dict object contains configurable options related to LACP system parameters for ether-bundles.

mac

string

Specifies the system ID to use in LACP negotiations for the bundle, encoded as a MAC address.

priority

integer

Specifies the system priority to use in LACP negotiations for the bundle.

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 IOS-XR device by executing the command show running-config int.

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

  • gathered

  • rendered
