Link Layer Discovery Protocol

This section describes Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) configuration tasks. Refer to the command descriptions for information about commands used in this chapter.

Topics in this section include:

LLDP Introduction

Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) lets Ethernet network devices to advertise details about themselves, such as capabilities, identification, and device configurations to directly connected devices on the network that are also using LLDP.

LLDP overview

LLDP is a discovery protocol that allows devices to advertise information about themselves to peer devices that are on the same physical LAN and store information about the network. LLDP allows a device to learn higher layer management reachability and connection endpoint information from adjacent devices.

Each switch with an active LLDP agent sends and receives messages on all physical interfaces enabled for LLDP transmission. These messages are sent periodically and are typically configured for short time intervals to ensure that accurate information is always available. These messages are then stored for a configurable period of time, and contained within the received packet. The message information expires and is discarded when the configured value is met. The only other time an advertisement is sent is when a relevant change takes place in the switch. If information changes for any reason, the LLDP agent is notified and will send out and update the new values.

LLDP Data Units

A single LLDP Data Unit (LLDPDU) is transmitted in a single 802.3 Ethernet frame. The basic LLDPDU includes a header and a series of type-length-value elements (TLVs). Each TLV advertises different types of information, such as its device ID, type, or management addresses.

LLDP advertises the following TLVs by default:

  • port-description
  • system-capabilities
  • system-description
  • system-name
  • management-address
  • port-vlan

Transmission and Reception

Every device that uses LLDP has its own LLDP agent. The LLDP agent is responsible for the reception, transmission, and management of LLDP. When LLDP is enabled on a port, transmission and reception of LLDPDUs are both enabled by default, but the agent can be configured to only transmit or only receive.

Transmission

When LLDP transmission is enabled, the LLDP agent advertises information about the switch to neighbors at regular intervals. Each transmitted LLDPDU contains the mandatory TLVs, and any enabled optional TLVs.

Reception

When LLDP reception is enabled, the LLDP agent receives and stores advertised information from neighboring devices.

Storing LLDP Information

Whenever the switch receives a valid and current LLDP advertisement from a neighbor, it stores the information in a Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) management information base (MIB).

Guidelines and Limitations

LLDP has the following configuration limitations:

  • LLDP must be enabled globally before it can be enabled on an interface.
  • LLDP is not supported on virtual interfaces.
  • LLDP can discover only one device per port.

LLDP Configuration Procedures

Enabling LLDP Globally

The lldp run command globally enables LLDP on the Arista switch. Once LLDP is enabled, the switch will transmit advertisements from the ports that are configured to send TLVs. The neighbor information table is populated as advertisements from the neighbors arrive on the ports.

Example

This command enables LLDP globally on the Arista switch.

switch(config)#lldp run
switch(config)#

Enabling LLDP on an Interface

When enabling LLDP, it is enabled on all interfaces by default. By using the lldp transmit and lldp receive commands, LLDP can be enabled or disabled on individual interfaces or configured to only send or only receive LLDP packets.

Examples

  • These commands enable Ethernet port 3/1 to transmit LLDP packets.

    switch(config)#interface ethernet 3/1
    switch(config-if-Et3/1)#lldp transmit
    switch(config-if-Et3/1)#
  • These commands enable Ethernet port 3/1 to receive LLDP packets.

    switch(config)#interface ethernet 3/1
    switch(config-if-Et3/1)#lldp receive 
    switch(config-if-Et3/1)#

Optional LLDP Parameters

Setting the LLDP Timer

The lldp timer command specifies the time in seconds between LLDP updates sent by the switch.

Examples
  • This command specifies that the LLDP updates should be sent every 120 seconds.

    switch(config)#lldp timer 120
    switch(config)#
  • This command reverts the LLDP timer to its default value of 30 seconds.

    switch(config)#no lldp timer 120
    switch(config)#

Setting the LLDP Hold Time

The lldp hold-time command sets the amount of time a receiving device should retain the information sent by the device.

Examples
  • This command specifies that the receiving device should retain the information for 180 seconds before discarding it.

    switch(config)#lldp hold-time 180
    switch(config)#
  • This command reverts the LLDP hold time and to the default value of 120 seconds.

    switch(config)#no lldp hold-time 180
    switch(config)#

Setting the LLDP Re-initialization Timer

The lldp run command specifies the amount in time in seconds to delay the re-initialization attempt by the switch.

Example
This command specifies that the switch waits 10 seconds before attempting to re-initialize.
switch(config)#lldp timer reinitialization 10
switch(config)#

Setting the IP Management Address to be used in the TLV

The lldp management-address command specifies the IP management address or the IP address of the VRF interface in LLDP type-length-value (TLV) triplets.

Example
  • This command specifies the IP management address to be used in the TLV.

    switch(config)# lldp management-address ethernet 3/1
    switch(config)#

Selecting the LLDP TLVs

The lldp tlv transmit command specifies which type, length, and value elements (TLVs) are to be included in LLDP packets. The no lldp tlv transmit command removes the TLV configuration.

Example
This command enables the system descriptions to be included in the TLVs.
switch(config)#lldp tlv transmit system-description
switch(config)#

Configuring LLDP for Power over Ethernet

Initial power over Ethernet (PoE) power-level negotiation with a powered device (PD) takes place in hardware (see Configuring Power over Ethernet (PoE)). Once hardware negotiation has taken place, IEEE 802.3at Power Via MDI type-length-value elements (TLVs) are included by default in LLDP packets sent to connected PDs to allow LLDP to further negotiate power needs. LLDP allows the switch to deal with more granular power requests from PDs, and also allows dynamic power-level setting. TLVs received from connected power-sourcing equipment (PSE) are ignored.

Note: Power Via MDI TLVs are not sent (even when enabled) under the following circumstances: 1) there is a user-configured power limit on the port, or 2) hardware negotiation sets the power to higher than class 4 because IEEE 802.3bt, which increases the maximum power output for PoE, is not yet supported by LLDP.

To disable Power Via MDI TLVs globally, use the no lldp tlv transmit command and specify the Power Via MDI TLV. Hardware negotiation and manual power limits will remain in effect.

Example
This command disables the sending of Power Via MDI TLVs globally.
switch(config)#no lldp tlv transmit power-via-mdi
switch(config)#

To disable Power Via MDI TLVs on an individual interface, use the poe negotiation lldp disabled command. Hardware negotiation and manual power limits will remain in effect.

Example
These commands disable the sending of Power Via MDI TLVs on Ethernet interface 5.
switch(config)#interface ethernet 5
switch(config-if-Et5)#poe negotiation lldp disabled
switch(config-if-Et5)#
New LLDP Fields Defined by IEEE 802.3at-2009

Arista switches do not support the following new LLDP/SNMP fields defined in IEEE standard 802.3at-2009:

  • Power type a LldpXdot3RemPowerType
  • Power source a LldpXdot3RemPowerSource
  • Power priority a LldpXdot3RemPowerPriority
  • PD requested power value a LldpXdot3RemPDRequestedPowerValue
  • PSE allocated power value a LldpXdot3RemPSEAllocatedPowerValue
