Overview

The Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) is a vendor-neutral link layer protocol in the Internet Protocol Suite used by network devices for advertising their identity, capabilities, and neighbors on an IEEE 802 local area network, principally wired Ethernet.

wikipedia.org

Ladvd is a lldp / cdp / edp / fdp / ndp sender for Unix. Ladvd uses link-layer advertisements to inform switches about connected hosts, which simplifies Ethernet switch management. It does this by forking into a privileged parent which handles all raw sockets (and certain ioctls), and an unprivileged child which creates and parses all packets. Every 30 seconds the child generates advertisement frames reflecting the current system state. Interfaces (bridge, bonding, wireless), capabilities (bridging, forwarding, wireless) and addresses (IPv4, IPv6) are detected dynamically. Secondly ladvd can listen for incoming frames and utilize these for various features (protocol auto-enable, logging, interface descriptions).
