New in version 2.4.

Synopsis

  • Manages BFD session view configuration on HUAWEI CloudEngine devices.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
admin_down
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Enables the BFD session to enter the AdminDown state. By default, a BFD session is enabled. The default value is bool type.
description
-
Specifies the description of a BFD session. The value is a string of 1 to 51 case-sensitive characters with spaces.
detect_multi
-
Specifies the local detection multiplier of a BFD session. The value is an integer that ranges from 3 to 50.
local_discr
-
Specifies the local discriminator of a BFD session. The value is an integer that ranges from 1 to 16384.
min_rx_interval
-
Specifies the minimum interval for sending BFD packets. The value is an integer that ranges from 50 to 1000, in milliseconds.
min_tx_interval
-
Specifies the minimum interval for receiving BFD packets. The value is an integer that ranges from 50 to 1000, in milliseconds.
provider
-
A dict object containing connection details.
host
- / required
Specifies the DNS host name or address for connecting to the remote device over the specified transport. The value of host is used as the destination address for the transport.
password
-
Specifies the password to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This is a common argument used for cli transports. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_PASSWORD will be used instead.
port
-
Default:
0 (use common port)
Specifies the port to use when building the connection to the remote device. This value applies to either cli or netconf. The port value will default to the appropriate transport common port if none is provided in the task. (cli=22, netconf=22).
ssh_keyfile
-
Specifies the SSH key to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This argument is used for the cli transport. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_SSH_KEYFILE will be used instead.
transport
- / required
Default:
cli
Configures the transport connection to use when connecting to the remote device. The transport argument supports connectivity to the device over cli (ssh).
username
-
Configures the username to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate the CLI login. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_USERNAME will be used instead.
remote_discr
-
Specifies the remote discriminator of a BFD session. The value is an integer that ranges from 1 to 4294967295.
session_name
- / required
Specifies the name of a BFD session. The value is a string of 1 to 15 case-sensitive characters without spaces.
state
-
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Determines whether the config should be present or not on the device.
tos_exp
-
Specifies a priority for BFD control packets. The value is an integer ranging from 0 to 7. The default value is 7, which is the highest priority.
wtr_interval
-
Specifies the WTR time of a BFD session. The value is an integer that ranges from 1 to 60, in minutes. The default value is 0.

      remote_discr: 800
      state: present
      provider: '{{ cli }}'

  - name: Set the minimum interval for receiving BFD packets to 500 ms
    ce_bfd_view:
      session_name: atob
      min_rx_interval: 500
      state: present
