Syntax show lldp info remote-device [ port-list ]
Without the [ port-list ] option, this command provides a global
list of the individual devices it has detected by reading LLDP
advertisements (and also CDP advertisements). Discovered
devices are listed by the inbound port on which they were
Multiple devices listed for a single port indicates either or both
of the following:
– A discovered device is transmitting both LLDP and CDP
packets with different chassis and port ID information.
– Multiple devices are connected to the switch through a hub.
Discovering the same device on multiple ports indicates that
the remote device may be connected to the switch in one of the
– Through different VLANS using separate links. (This
applies to switches that use the same MAC address for all
– Through different links in the same trunk.
– Through different links using the same VLAN. (In this
case, spanning-tree should be invoked to prevent a net
work topology loop. Note that LLDP packets travel on links
that spanning-tree blocks for other traffic types.)
With the [ port-list ] option, this command provides a listing of
the LLDP data that the switch has detected in advertisements
received on the specified ports. If neighbor data is read from
CDP advertisements, the switch remaps this information into
the switch's LLDP neighbors MIB in addition to the CDP
