4.3 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

razorsedge/openlldp — version 1.0.0 Jul 1st 2017

Puppet Open-LLDP Module

master branch: Build Status develop branch: Build Status


This module installs Open-LLDP. lldpad (LLDP Agent Daemon) is a GPL licensed implementation of the Link Layer Discovery Protocol for Linux.


  • Installs Open-LLDP (lldpad).
  • Starts lldpad.
  • Provides LLDP neighbor facts via facter (requires lldpad running and configured to at least receive LLDP frames on each Ethernet interface).
  • Configures lldpad to receive and/or transmit LLDP frames via the included lldptool.
  • Configures lldpad to transmit LLDP TLVs.

OS Support:

  • RedHat family - tested on CentOS 6.3
  • SuSE family - presently unsupported (patches welcome)
  • Debian family - presently unsupported (patches welcome)

Class documentation is available via puppetdoc.


class { 'openlldp': }

# Configure lldpad to receive and transmit LLDP frames on the specific interface.
openlldp::config::lldp { 'eth0':
  adminstatus => 'rxtx',

# Configure lldpad to transmit Basic LLDP TLVs.
# openlldp::config::lldp adminstatus has to be tx or rxtx for these to transmit.
openlldp::config::tlv { 'eth0':
  portDesc => 'yes',
  sysName  => 'yes',
  sysDesc  => 'yes',
  sysCap   => 'yes',
  mngAddr  => 'yes',


  • Open-LLDP talks about applying configurations globally by not specifying "-i ethX" to lldptool. This has not worked with the versions tested (0.9.43), thus a global configuration mode has not been built into the Puppet module.
  • PVID TLV is not suported as a keyword with the versions tested (0.9.43), thus the code uses numerical values for all TLVs.
