Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 13.3R5, 14.2R2, 14.1R4, and 12.3R9.
For Link Layer Discovery Protocol, configure the value to be used for port description TLV.
Default: By default, interface-alias is used for generation of port description TLV. The interface-alias value is same as description of an interface configured by statement set interface name description description.
The LLDP MIB lldpLocPortDesc value gets changed depending on the setting of port-description-type statement. That is:
If you configure the port-description-type interface-alias statement, the MIB variable lldpLocPortDesc displays the value same as that of MIB variable ifAlias, which is same as the description of the interface. By default, the MIB variable lldpLocPortDesc displays the value same as that of MIB variable ifAlias.
If you configure the port-description-type interface-description statement , the MIB variable lldpLocPortDesc displays the value of MIB variable ifDescr, which is same as that of interface name.
