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.
