Synopsis

  • This module manages Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) attributes of NX-OS Interfaces.

Note

This module has a corresponding action plugin.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

list / elements=dictionary

A dictionary of LACP interfaces options.

convergence

dictionary

This dict contains configurable options related to convergence. Applicable only for Port-channel.

graceful

boolean

port-channel lacp graceful convergence. Disable this only with lacp ports connected to Non-Nexus peer. Disabling this with Nexus peer can lead to port suspension.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

vpc

boolean

Enable lacp convergence for vPC port channels.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

dictionary

This dict contains configurable options related to max and min port-channel links. Applicable only for Port-channel.

integer

Port-channel max bundle.

integer

Port-channel min links.

mode

string

LACP mode. Applicable only for Port-channel.

Choices:

  • delay

name

string / required

Name of the interface.

port_priority

integer

LACP port priority for the interface. Range 1-65535. Applicable only for Ethernet.

rate

string

Rate at which PDUs are sent by LACP. Applicable only for Ethernet. At fast rate LACP is transmitted once every 1 second. At normal rate LACP is transmitted every 30 seconds after the link is bundled.

Choices:

  • fast

  • normal

suspend_individual

boolean

port-channel lacp state. Disabling this will cause lacp to put the port to individual state and not suspend the port in case it does not get LACP BPDU from the peer ports in the port-channel.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

running_config

string

This option is used only with state parsed.

The value of this option should be the output received from the NX-OS 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

The state of the configuration after module completion.

Choices:

  • merged ← (default)

  • replaced

  • overridden

  • deleted

  • gathered

  • rendered

  • parsed

Notes

Note

  • Tested against NXOS 7.3.(0)D1(1) on VIRL

  • Unsupported for Cisco MDS
