Starts one-time, non-periodic ELRP packet transmission on the specified ports of the VLAN using the specified count and interval.
|vlan vlan_name||Specifies a VLAN name.|
|ports||Specifies the set of VLAN ports for packet transmission.|
|remote-endpoints||Specifies remote endpoints that are part of this VLAN.|
|vxlan||Specifies VXLAN remote endpoints that are part of this VLAN.|
|interval||Time interval between two successive ELRP PDUs.|
|interval||Interval value between 1–64 seconds or 100–64,000 milliseconds. Default is 1 second.|
|seconds||Specifies that time interval is in the unit of seconds.|
|milliseconds||Specifies that time interval is in the unit of milliseconds.|
|count||Specifies the number of times ELRP packets must be transmitted. The range is 3 to 255 times. The default is 10 times.|
Second—The interval between consecutive packet transmissions is 1 second.
Count—The number of time ELRP packets must be transmitted is 10.
If ports are not specified, the command is applied to all ports.
This command starts one-time, non-periodic ELRP packet transmission on the specified ports of the VLAN using the specified count and interval. If any of these transmitted packets is returned, indicating loopback detection, the ELRP client prints a log message to the console. There is no need to send a trap to the SNMP manager for non-periodic requests.
If you do not specify the optional interval or retry parameters, the default values are used.
Use the configure elrp-client periodic command to configure periodic transmission of ELRP packets.
The ELRP client must be enabled globally in order for it to work on any VLANs. Use the enable elrp-client command to globally enable the ELRP client.
The ELRP client can be disabled globally so that none of the ELRP VLAN configurations take effect. Use the disable elrp-client command to globally disable the ELRP client.
The following command starts one-time, non-periodic ELRP packet transmission on the VLAN green using the default interval and packet transmission:
run elrp green
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.1.
The ability to specify the time interval in milliseconds was introduced in ExtremeXOS 22.4.
VXLAN remote endpoint option added in ExtremeXOS 22.4.
Designating ports made optional in ExtremeXOS 22.6.
This command is available on ExtremeSwitching 5320, 5420, 5520, and 5720 series switches.
