LLDP MED Fast-Start Feature

The Link Layer Discovery Protocol MED fast-start feature allows you to increase the learning speed of the switch for LLDP MED TLVs. The fast-start feature is automatically enabled once you enable the LLDP MED capabilities TLV.

By default, the switch sends out the LLDPDU every second for up to the default repeat count, which is 3. Once the repeat count is reached, the configured transmit interval value is used between LLDPDUs. You can configure the repeat count to any number in the range of 1 to 10.

To configure the LLDP fast-start feature, use the following command:

configure lldp med fast-start repeat-count count
