vdp - Show / manipulate VDP TLV configuration SYNOPSIS
lldptool -t -i ethx -V vdp -c enableTx lldptool -T -i ethx -V vdp -c enableTx=[yes|no] lldptool -t -i ethx -V vdp -c mode lldptool -T -i ethx -V vdp -c mode=<mode>,<mgrid>,<typeid>,<typeidversion>,<instanceid>,<mac>,<vlan> lldptool -t -i ethx -V vdp -c role lldptool -T -i ethx -V vdp -c role=[station|bridge] DESCRIPTION
The VSI discovery protocol (VDP) is NOT a TLV in the LLDP sense but rather a protocol to manage the association and deassociation of vir- tual station interfaces (VSIs) between the station and an adjacent switch. VDP uses ECP as transport for VDP TLVs. An ECP frame may contain multiple VDP TLVs. Each VDP TLVs contains a mode, typeid, version, instanceid, mac and vlan for a VSI. ARGUMENTS
enableTx Enables or disables VDP mode shows or sets modes for VSIs with the following parameters: <mode> mode (0=preassociate, 1=preassociate with RR, 2=associate, 3=deassociate) <mgrid> manager (database) id <typeid> VSI type id <version> VSI type id version <instanceid> VSI instance id <format> VDP filter info format <mac> VSI mac address <vlan> VSI vlan id role shows or sets the role of the local machine to act as either station (default) or bridge. Theory of Operation The VDP protocol is used to pre-associate, associate or deassociate VSIs to and adjacent switch. Information about the VSIs is formatted into VDP TLVs which are then handed to ECP for lower-level transport. Each ECP frame may contain multiple VDP TLVs. Two ways to receive VSI information exist in llpdad: via netlink or with lldptool. netlink is used by libvirt to communicate VSIs to lld- pad. lldptool can be used to associate/deassociate VSIs from the command line. This is especially helpful for testing purposes.

Currently the code in lldpad reflects draft 0 of the upcoming standard. ECP/VDP TLVs on the wire can be decoded with wireshark > v1.8. SEE ALSO

LLDP-MED - Show / manipulate MED TLV configurations SYNOPSIS
lldptool -t -i ethx -V [ TLV_TYPE ] enableTx lldptool -T -i ethx -V [ TLV_TYPE ] enableTx = { yes | no } lldptool -T -i ethx -V LLDP-MED devtype = { class1 | class2 | class3 } lldptool -t -i ethx -V LLDP-MED devtype TLV_TYPE : = {LLDP-MED | medCap | medPolicy | medLoc | medPower | medHwRev | medFwRev | medSwRev | medSerNum | medManuf | medModel | medAssetID } DESCRIPTION
The LLDP-MED extensions support the Link Layer Discovery Protocol for Media Endpoint Devices defined in the ANSI/TIA-1057-2006 document. Each TLV can be configured as a class1 , class2 or class3 device. Class I devices are the most basic class of Endpoint Device, Class II devices support media stream capabilities and Class III devices directly support end users of the IP communication system. See ANS-TIA-1057 for clarification of class types. ARGUMENTS
enableTx Enables the TLV to be transmitted devtype Set or query the class type of the device. TLV_TYPE List of supported TLV specifiers applicable to Media Endpoint Devices. LLDP-MED apply arguments to all supported MED TLVs. medCAP LLDP-MED Capabilities TLV medPolicy LLDP-MED Network Policy TLV medLoc LLDP-MED Location TLV medPower LLDP-MED Extended Power-via-MDI TLV medHwRev LLDP-MED Hardware Revision TLV medFwRev LLDP-MED Firmware Revision TLV medSwRev LLDP-MED Software Revision TLV medSerNum LLDP-MED Serial Number TLV medManuf LLDP-MED Manufacturer Name TL medModel LLDP-MED Model Name TLV medAssetID LLDP-MED Asset ID TLV EXAMPLE &; USAGE Enable class1 MED device on eth2 lldptool -T -i eth2 -V LLDP-MED enableTx=yes devtype=class1 Query class type of MED on eth2 lldptool -t -i eth2 -V LLDP-MED -c devtype Query transmit state of medPolicy on device eth2 lldptool -t -i eth2 -V medPolicy -c enableTx SOURCE o Link Layer Discovery Protocol for Media Endpoint Devices ( TIA-1057_final_for_publication.pdf) NOTES
