CDP & LLDP simultaneously
« on: July 12, 2013, 11:22:21 AM »
Hello.

We have multivendor network (cisco, 3com, hp, mikrotik) & nedi 1.08.  3com supports only LLDP, mikrotik supports only CDP, cisco & HP support both. Currently we using LLDP in the all .def files. Due to this are not built links between mikrotik and cisco.
It would be great to make discovery using both CDP & LLDP protocols simultaneously. If the information on links duplicated for both protocols then insert into the database only the link data of the first discovery protocol.

Thanks.

NeDi does that, but you may have to use "disproto  lldp|cdp" in the .def files. Be aware though, that for example some Cisco devices don't understand LLDP and 3Com devices ignore CDP. So, neither side will create neighbor entries, that NeDi can discover...
