Link Layer Discovery Protocol Implementation (Runtime)
The lldpad package is an implementation of the Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP). It originated from Intel's Data Center Bridging (DCB) software - the dcbd package. The lldpad package adds LLDP support for all ports in addition to DCB Exchange protocol (DCBX) support on DCB capable ports (as was provided by dcbd). Also, support for additional LLDP TLVs has been added.
DCB is a collection of emerging standards-based technologies designed to allow Ethernet to support multiple types of traffic classes in the Data Center. The DCBX functionality of this package is designed to work with the DCB kernel interface (dcbnl in rtnetlink) that is included in the Linux kernel 2.6.29 or higher. The Intel ixgbe driver supports the dcbnl interface.
This package contains lldpad runtime binaries.
