configure lldp ports [all | port_list] [advertise | no-advertise] vendor-specific avaya-extreme poe-conservation-request

Syntax Description

port_list Specifies one or more ports or slots and ports.
advertise Specifies to send the information to neighbors.
no-advertise Specifies not to send the information to neighbors.


No advertise.

Usage Guidelines

The switch sends this proprietary LLDP TLV to request a PD to go into a certain power conservation level or request the PD to go to the maximum conservation level. This LLDP TLV is transmitted only on PoE-capable ports.

When configured to advertise, the switch sends this TLV with a requested conservation power level of 0, which requests no power conservation. To temporarily change this conservation level, use the SNMP lldpXAvExLocPortXPoEPSEPortReqLevel object to set a new value; the reconfigured value is not saved over a reboot. (This SNMP object can be set from 0 to 243 or 255.)


The following command configures all ports to advertise the currently requested conservation level to neighbors:

configure lldp ports all advertise vendor-specific avaya-extreme poe-conservation-request
