Configures an application priority to be advertised to DCBX end stations.
Specifies all ports on the switch.
Specifies one or more ports or slots and ports.
Specifies an application. Supported values are:
Specifies an ethertype value in the range of 1536 to 65535.
Specifies a Layer 4 port number in the range of 0 to 65535. Supported Layer4 protocols include TCP, SCTP, UDP, and DCCP.
Specifies a TCP port number in the range of 0 to 65535.
Specifies a UDP port number in the range of 0 to 65535.
Specifies a priority in the range of 0 to 7.
This command configures the switch to advertise the priority that an end station should use for the specified application or port number. The priority number is mapped to an 802.1p value, which determines how the switch manages traffic from that application or port.
The switch supports a maximum of 8 DCBX applications per port. If an application configuration already exists on the specified port or ports, the priority is updated to the new value. If the maximum number of applications for a port is exceeded, the switch logs an error message.
The following command configures the switch to advertise priority 4 for the iSCSI application on ports1 to 24:
configure lldp ports 1-24 dcbx add application name iscsi priority 4
The following command configures the switch to advertise priority 3 for ethertype value 34525 on port1:
configure lldp ports 1 dcbx add application ethertype 34525 priority 3
The following command configures the switch to advertise priority 6 for Layer 4 port 992 on port1:
configure lldp ports 1 dcbx add application L4-port 992 priority 6
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.6.
This command is available on ExtremeSwitching 5320, 5420, 5520, and 5720 series switches.
