A Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) profile is the
way in which you configure the LLDP mode of the firewall, enable
syslog and SNMP notifications, and configure the optional Type-Length-Values (TLVs)
you want transmitted to LLDP peers. After configuring the LLDP profile,
you assign the profile to one or more interfaces.
Learn more about LLDP, including how to
configure and monitor LLDP.
