LLDP Administration Guide
Oracle's SEFOS LLDP enables devices attached to an IEEE 802 LAN to advertise their own information to other devices attached to the same IEEE 802 LAN and to learn about the other devices.The advertised information includes:
Major capabilities provided by the system incorporating that device.
Management address or addresses of the entity or entities that provide management of those capabilities.
Identification of the point of attachment to the IEEE 802 LAN, which is required by the management entity or entities.
The advertised information is learned and stored by recipients in a standard MIB. Thus, a NMS can access the information using SNMP.
