Synopsis

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

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults 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
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
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.
vpc
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Enable lacp convergence for vPC port channels.
links
dictionary
This dict contains configurable options related to max and min port-channel links. Applicable only for Port-channel.
max
integer
Port-channel max bundle.
min
integer
Port-channel min links.
mode
string
    Choices:
  • delay
LACP mode. Applicable only for Port-channel.
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
    Choices:
  • fast
  • normal
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.
suspend_individual
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
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.
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
    Choices:
  • merged ←
  • replaced
  • overridden
  • deleted
  • gathered
  • rendered
  • parsed
The state of the configuration after module completion.

Notes

Note

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