Configuring LLDP on the controller
To customize TLV settings, select Configure TLVs on the Controller >> Network >
Discovery protocols page. The same TLV settings are available on both the LAN port and
the Internet port.
The controller supports all mandatory and optional TLVs (type, length, value) information
elements that are part of the basic management set.
The controller always sends these TLVs with the values as shown.
Chassis ID (Type 1): The MAC address of the controller.
Port ID (Type 2): The MAC address of the port on which the TLV will be transmitted.
Time to live (Type 3): Defines the length of time that neighbors will consider LLDP
information sent by this agent to be valid. Calculated by multiplying Transmit interval
by the Multiplier (as defined on the Discovery protocols page).
Select the optional TLVs that you want to send with the values as shown.
Port description (Type 4): A description of the port.
System name (Type 5): Administrative name assigned to the device from which the TLV
was transmitted. By default this is the SNMP system name. If the Dynamic system name
option is enabled, the system name is replaced by the dynamically generated name. The
controller can only have one system name. If both the LAN and Internet ports have active
agents, then the name generated by the LAN port is used.
System description (Type 6): Description of the system, comprised of the following
information: hardware serial number, hardware revision number, and firmware version.
