  1. View LLDP global settings.
    On the LLDP General screen,
    indicates whether LLDP is enabled or not.
    • If LLDP is enabled, the configured global settings (Transmit Interval, Transmit Delay, Hold Time Multiple, and Notification Interval) are displayed.
    • If LLDP is not enabled, the default values of the global settings are displayed.
    For descriptions of these values, see second step in Configure LLDP.
  2. View the LLDP status information.

    2. (
      ) Enter a filter to restrict the information that is displayed.
      Interface Information:
      • Interface
        —Name of the interfaces that have LLDP profiles assigned to them.
      • LLDP
        —LLDP status: enabled or disabled.
      • Mode
        — LLDP mode of the interface: Tx/Rx, Tx Only, or Rx Only.
      • Profile
        —Name of the profile assigned to the interface.
      Transmission Information:
      • Total Transmitted
        —Count of LLDPDUs transmitted out the interface.
      • Dropped Transmit
        —Count of LLDPDUs that were not transmitted out the interface because of an error. For example, a length error when the system is constructing an LLDPDU for transmission.
      Received Information:
      • Total Received
        —Count of LLDP frames received on the interface.
      • Dropped TLV
        —Count of LLDP frames discarded upon receipt.
      • Errors
        —Count of TLVs that were received on the interface and contained errors. Types of TLV errors include: one or more mandatory TLVs missing, out of order, containing out-of-range information, or length error.
      • Unrecognized
        —Count of TLVs received on the interface that are not recognized by the LLDP local agent. For example, the TLV type is in the reserved TLV range.
