Network > Network Profiles > LLDP Profile
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.
LLDP Profile Settings
Specify a name for the LLDP profile.
Select the mode in which LLDP will function: transmit-receive, transmit-only, or receive-only.
SNMP Syslog Notification
Enables SNMP trap and syslog notifications, which will occur at the global Notification Interval. If enabled, the firewall will send both an SNMP trap and a syslog event as configured in the DeviceLog SettingsSystemSNMP Trap Profile and Syslog Profile.
Enables the ifAlias object of the firewall to be sent in the Port Description TLV.
Enables the sysName object of the firewall to be sent in the System Name TLV.
Enables the sysDescr object of the firewall to be sent in the System Description TLV.
Enables the deployment mode (L3, L2, or virtual wire) of the interface to be sent, via the following mapping, in the System Capabilities TLV.
SNMP MIB will combine capabilities configured on interfaces into a single entry.
Enables the Management Address to be sent in the Management Address TLV. You can enter up to four management addresses, which are sent in the order they are specified. To change the order, click Move Up or Move Down.
Specify a name for the Management Address.
Select an interface whose IP address will be the Management Address. If you select None, you can enter an IP address in the field next to the IPv4 or IPv6 selection.
Select IPv4 or IPv6, and in the adjacent field, select or enter the IP address to be transmitted as the Management Address. At least one management address is required if Management Address TLV is enabled. If no management IP address is configured, the system uses the MAC address of the transmitting interface as the management address transmitted.
