Support for Enabling or Disabling LLDP


This feature provides for a generic LLDP ON/OFF toggle function set at the system level.


Currently, to disable LLDP on a switch you must disable the LLDP configuration on all ports. This resets all related configurations of LLDP protocol setting and LLDP vFlows.


Use the following CLI command to enable and disable the protocol:


CLI (network-admin@Leaf1) > system-settings-modify [lldp|no-lldp]


LLDP packets are executed on the CPU with the help of LLDP vFlows.


To clear all LLDP protocol system flows use the parameter no-lldp.


To add all LLDP protocol system flows use the parameter lldp.


This approach ensures port LLDP configurations are not disturbed.


CLI (network-admin@Leaf1) > system-settings-show


switch:                        Spine1

optimize-arps:                 on

lldp:                          on
