Synopsis

  • Collects a base set of device facts from a remote device that is running FRR. This module prepends all of the base network fact keys with ansible_net_<fact>. The facts module will always collect a base set of facts from the device and can enable or disable collection of additional facts.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
gather_subset
list / elements=string
Default:
"!config"
When supplied, this argument restricts the facts collected to a given subset.
Possible values for this argument include all, hardware, config, and interfaces.
Specify a list of values to include a larger subset.
Use a value with an initial ! to collect all facts except that subset.

Notes

Note

  • Tested against FRR 6.0.
