This module installs and manages lldpd which provides LLDP advertisements to connected network devices.

RHEL/CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian and OpenBSD are supported using Puppet 5 or later.


Setup Requirements

On RHEL/CentOS platforms you will need to have access to the EPEL repository by using puppet/epel or by other means.

Beginning with lldpd

In the very simplest case, applying the module will install and start the lldpd agent and enable LLDP advertisements:

include lldpd


If you want to also enable the Cisco Discovery Protocol, which comprises two versions, use the following:

class { 'lldpd':
  enable_cdpv1 => true,
  enable_cdpv2 => true,

Enabling the SNMP AgentX sub-agent can be done with:

class { 'lldpd':
  enable_snmp => true,
  snmp_socket => ['', 705],


The reference documentation is generated with puppet-strings and the latest version of the documentation is hosted at and available also in the


This module has been built on and tested against Puppet 5 and higher.

The module has been tested on:

  • Red Hat/CentOS Enterprise Linux 6/7/8
  • Ubuntu 16.04/18.04/20.04
  • Debian 9/10
  • OpenBSD 6.9
