Feature Information for Using the IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation MIB


Using the IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation MIB


First Published: April 21, 2008
Last Updated: February 6, 2011

The IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) enables the bundling of physical interfaces on a physical device to achieve more bandwidth than is available using a single interface. This feature introduces IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation (LAG) MIB support in Cisco IOS software. The LAG MIB both supports the management of interfaces and ports that are part of an LACP port channel and is accessed by a Simple Network Manager Protocol (SNMP) manager application.

Finding Feature Information

Your software release may not support all the features documented in this module. For the latest feature information and caveats, see the release notes for your platform and software release. To find information about the features documented in this module, and to see a list of the releases in which each feature is supported, see the "Feature Information for Using the IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation MIB" section.

Feature Information for Using the IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation MIB

Prerequisites for Using the IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation MIB

Link aggregation must be configured using the LACP command-line interface (CLI) commands before the MIB tables can be accessed.

LACP must be supported in the Cisco IOS image.

IEEE 802.3ad LAG MIB

Configuration and Management of LACP bundles

LAG MIB Table Object Definitions

IEEE 802.3ad LAG MIB

The IEEE 802.3ad LAG MIB supports the management of interfaces and ports that are part of an LACP port channel. No specific commands are used to enable the MIB; access is through an SNMP manager application. For information about using SNMP in Cisco IOS software, see the "Configuring SNMP Support" chapter of the Cisco IOS Network Management Configuration Guide.

Configuration and Management of LACP bundles

To use the LAG MIB, it is important to know how LACP bundles are configured and managed. For more information about LACP bundles, see the "Configuring IEEE 802.3ad Link Bundling and Load Balancing" chapter of the Cisco IOS Carrier Ethernet Configuration Guide.

LAG MIB Table Object Definitions

This section lists the MIB objects and tables that are supported as part of this feature.

dot3adTablesLastChanged Object

The dot3adTablesLastChanged object indicates the time of the most recent change to the dot3adAggTable, dot3adAggPortListTable, or dot3adAggPortTable.

dot3adAggTable

The dot3adAggTable (Aggregator Configuration table) contains information about every aggregator that is associated with a system. Each LACP channel in a device occupies an entry in the dot3adAggTable. Some objects in the table have restrictions, which are described with the object. The objects are described in Table 1.

Table 1 Aggregator Configuration Table Objects 

Object
Maximum Access/Description

dot3adAggActorAdminKey

Cannot be changed via the SET operation.

dot3adAggActorOperKey

Write access not supported.

dot3adAggActorSystemID

Write access not supported.

dot3adAggActorSystemPriority

Write access not supported.

dot3adAggAggregateOrIndividual

Returns a value of TRUE if more than 1 port is configured in the channel; otherwise, returns a value of FALSE.

dot3adAggCollectorMaxDelay

Cannot be changed via the SET operation.

dot3adAggIndex

Write access not supported.

dot3adAggMACAddress

Write access not supported.

dot3adAggPartnerOperKey

Write access not supported.

dot3adAggPartnerSystemID

Write access not supported.

dot3adAggPartnerSystemPriority

Write access i not supported.


dot3adAggPortListTable

The dot3adAggPortListTable (Aggregation Port List table) contains a list of all the ports associated with each aggregator. Each LACP channel in a device occupies an entry in the table. The objects are described in Table 2.

Table 2 Aggregation Port List Table Objects 

Object
Maximum Access/Description

dot3adAggPortListPorts

Write access not supported.


dot3adAggPortTable

The dot3adAggPortTable (Aggregation Port table) contains LACP configuration information about every aggregation port associated with a device. Each physical port in a device occupies an entry in the dot3adAggPortTable. The objects are described in Table 3.

Table 3 Aggregation Port Table Objects 

Object
Maximum Access/Description

dot3adAggPortActorAdminKey

Write access not supported.

Write access not supported.

dot3adAggPortActorSystemID

Write access not supported.

dot3adAggPortActorSystemPriority

Write access not supported.

dot3adAggPortAggregateOrIndividual

Indicates whether a port is attached to an LACP channel. If the port is attached to an LACP channel and the value of the dot3adAggPortAttachedAggID object in the same row is not zero, the value of this object is TRUE. Otherwise, the value is FALSE.

dot3adAggPortAttachedAggID

Write access not supported.

dot3adAggPortIndex

Write access not supported.
