Synopsis

  • This module manages Global Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) settings on IOS-XR devices.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

dictionary

The provided global LLDP configuration.

holdtime

integer

Specifies the holdtime (in sec) to be sent in packets.

reinit

integer

Specifies the delay (in sec) for LLDP initialization on any interface.

subinterfaces

boolean

Enable or disable LLDP over sub-interfaces.

Choices:

  • false

  • true

timer

integer

Specifies the rate at which LLDP packets are sent (in sec).

tlv_select

dictionary

Specifies the LLDP TLVs to enable or disable.

management_address

boolean

Enable or disable management address TLV.

Choices:

  • false

  • true

port_description

boolean

Enable or disable port description TLV.

Choices:

  • false

  • true

system_capabilities

boolean

Enable or disable system capabilities TLV.

Choices:

  • false

  • true

system_description

boolean

Enable or disable system description TLV.

Choices:

  • false

  • true

system_name

boolean

Enable or disable system name TLV.

Choices:

  • false

  • true

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 lldp.

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"

  • "deleted"

  • "parsed"

  • "gathered"

  • "rendered"
