Optional Data

You can configure an individual port or group of ports to exclude one or more of the following data types from outbound LLDP advertisements.

  • Port description (TLV)

  • System name (TLV)

  • System description (TLV)

  • System capabilities (TLV)
    • System capabilities Supported (TLV subelement)

    • System capabilities Enabled (TLV subelement)

  • Port speed and duplex (TLV subelement)

Optional data types, when enabled, are populated with data internal to the switch; that is, you cannot use LLDP commands to configure their actual content.
