NAME

       APP - Show / manipulate APP TLV configuration

SYNOPSIS

       lldptool -t -i ethx -V APP [-c app]

       lldptool -T -i ethx -V APP [-d] app=prio,sel,pid

DESCRIPTION

       The  APP  TLV  is  an  informational TLV and will advertise the current
       configured application table. If the peer APP TLV and a local  APP  TLV
       match the same selector and protocol field the local parameter is used.

ARGUMENTS

       app    Configures  a  local  application  data  field  using  the three
              parameters: priority (prio), selector (sel), and protocol (pid).
              The  -d  option can be provided to remove an entry which matches
              the three parameters.

Theory of Operations

       The APP TLV is an informational TLV for most end stations.  It  is  not
       expected  that  setting  APP data should be required. Peer data will be
       processed and added to the application data table by  default  assuming
       there  does  not already exist a local entry with matching selector and
       priority fields.

       By adding APP data  to  the  application  table  it  is  available  for
       applications,  eg  iscsid,  to query. Applications query for a specific
       protocol and selector and may use this  data  to  map  traffic  to  the
       corresponding traffic class.

EXAMPLE & USAGE

       Configure ISCSI application for priority 4 on eth2
              lldptool -T -i eth2 -V APP app=4,2,3260

       Configure FCoE application for priority 3 on eth2
              lldptool -T -i eth2 -V APP app=3,1,35078

       Remove FCoE application for priority 3 on eth2
              lldptool -T -i eth2 -V APP -d app=3,1,35078

       Display locally configured application table on eth2
              lldptool -t -i eth2 -V APP -c app

       Display last transmitted APP TLV on eth2
              lldptool -t -i eth2 -V APP
