lldptool - manage the LLDP settings and status of lldpad
lldptool <command> [options] [argument]
lldptool is used to query and configure lldpad. It connects to the client interface of lldpad to perform these operations. lldptool will operate in interactive mode if it is executed without a command. In interactive mode, lldptool also functions as an event listener and will print out events as they are received asynchronously from lldpad.
-i [ifname] specifies the network interface to which the command applies -V [tlvid] specifies the TLV identifier The tlvid is an integer value used to identify specific LLDP TLVs. The tlvid value is the Type value for types not equal to 127 (the organizationally specific type). For organizationally specific TLVs, the tlvid is the value represented by the 3 byte OUI and 1 byte subtype - where the subtype is the lowest order byte of the tlvid. The tlvid can be entered as a numerical value (e.g. 10 or 0xa), or for supported TLVs, as a keyword. Review the lldptool help output to see the list of supported TLV keywords. -n "neighbor" option for commands which can use it (e.g. get-tlv) -g [bridge scope] specify the bridge scope this command operates on. Allows to set and query all LLDP TLV modules for "nearest_bridge" (short: "nb"), "nearest_customer_bridge" ("ncb") and "nearest_nontpmr_bridge" ("nntpmrb") group mac addresses. Configurations are saved into independent sections in lldpad.conf. If no bridge scope is supplied this default to "nearest bridge" to preserve the previous behaviour. -c <argument list> "config" option for TLV queries. Indicates that the query is for the configuration elements for the specified TLV. The argument list specifies the specific elements to query. If no arguments are listed, then all configuration elements for the TLV are returned. -r show raw client interface messages -R show only raw Client interface messages

adminStatus Argument for the get-lldp/set-lldp commands. May be applied per port or globbally. Valid values are: disabled, rx, tx, rxtx enableTx Argument for the get-tlv/set-tlv commands. May be applied per port for a specified TLV. Valid values are: yes, no. If the DCBX TLV enableTx is set to no, then all of the DCB feature TLVs DCBX advertise settings will be turned off as well. Setting enableTx to yes for a DCBX TLV will not affect the DCBX advertise settings. ipv4 Argument for the get-tlv/set-tlv commands with respect to the Management Address TLV. May be applied per port or globally. The get command will retrieve the configured value. Set values take the form of an IPv4 address: A.B.C.D ipv6 Argument for the get-tlv/set-tlv commands with respect to the Management Address TLV. May be applied per port or globally. The get command will retrieve the configured value. Set values take the form of an IPv6 address: 1111:2222:3333:4444:5555:6666:7777:8888 and various shorthand variations.
