Configure LLDP Global Objects

Global objects are system-specific objects that are common for all interfaces in the system.

  1. At switch 1, change the global configuration of LLDP.
    SEFOS# configure terminal
    SEFOS(config)# lldp transmit-interval 15
    SEFOS(config)# lldp holdtime-multiplier 2
    SEFOS(config)# lldp reinitialization-delay 5
    SEFOS(config)# lldp tx-delay 3
    SEFOS(config)# lldp notification-interval 10
    SEFOS(config)# lldp chassis-id-subtype local "switch"
    SEFOS(config)# end

    The values given to each parameter in this step are examples only.

  2. Review the values of global configuration.
    SEFOS# show lldp
    LLDP is disabled
    Transmit Interval        : 15
    Holdtime Multiplier        : 2
    Reinitialization Delay    : 5
    Tx Delay            : 3
    Notification Interval    : 10
    Chassis Id SubType        : Local
    Chassis Id            : switch
  3. Reset the LLDP global configuration to the default values.
    SEFOS# configure terminal
    SEFOS(config)# no lldp transmit-interval
    SEFOS(config)# no lldp holdtime-multiplier
    SEFOS(config)# no lldp reinitialization-delay
    SEFOS(config)# no lldp tx-delay
    SEFOS(config)# no lldp notification-interval
    SEFOS(config)# lldp chassis-id-subtype mac-addr
    SEFOS(config)# end
  4. View the LLDP global configuration.
    SEFOS# show lldp
    LLDP is disabled
    Transmit Interval        : 30
    Holdtime Multiplier        : 4
    Reinitialization Delay    : 2
    Tx Delay            : 2
    Notification Interval    : 5
    Chassis Id SubType        : Mac Address
    Chassis Id            : 00:01:02:03:04:01
