CDP Commands on the Cisco IOS XR Software

This module describes the Cisco IOS XR software commands for monitoring the networking device and network using Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP).

For detailed information about CDP concepts, configuration tasks, and examples, see the Implementing CDP on Cisco IOS XR Software module in Cisco IOS XR System Management Configuration Guide for the Cisco CRS Router.

cdp

To enable the Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) globally or on an interface, use the cdp command in the appropriate configuration mode. To disable CDP globally or on an interface, use the no form of this command.

cdp

no cdp

Syntax Description

This command has no keywords or arguments.

Command Default

CDP is disabled.

Command Modes

Global configuration

Interface configuration

Command History

Release

Modification

Release 2.0

This command was introduced.

Release 3.2

The enable and disable keywords were removed.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

By default, CDP is disabled globally. To enable CDP, CDP must be enabled globally and then enabled for each interface.

To enable CDP globally, use the cdp command in global configuration mode. To disable CDP globally, use the no form of this command in global configuration mode.

To enable CDP on a specific interface, use the cdp command in interface configuration mode. To disable CDP on a specific interface, use the no form of this command in interface configuration mode.

The following interface types do not support CDP:

  • 802.1Q VLAN subinterfaces
  • ATM interfaces and ATM subinterfaces
  • Bundle Interfaces
  • Loopback interfaces
  • Service interfaces
  • Tunnel Interfaces

Examples

The following example shows how to globally enable CDP:

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config)# cdp
         

The following example shows how to enable CDP on an interface:

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config)# interface gigabitethernet 0/0/0/1
RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config-if)# cdp
               

The following example shows how to disable CDP on an interface:

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config)# interface gigabitethernet 0/0/0/1 
RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config-if)# no cdp
  
            
         

Related Commands

Command

Description

show cdp

Displays global Cisco Discovery Protocol information, including CDP version, timer, and holdtime information.

cdp advertise v1

To change the version of Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) that is used to communicate with neighboring devices to version 1 (CDPv1), use the cdp advertise v1 command in global configuration mode. To remove the cdp advertise v1 command from the configuration file and restore the system to its default condition with respect to this command, use the no form of this command.

cdp advertise v1

no cdp advertise [v1]

Syntax Description

This command has no keywords or arguments.

Command Default

Version 2 is enabled.

Command Modes

Global configuration

Command History

Release

Modification

Release 2.0

This command was introduced.

Release 3.0

The v2 keyword was removed.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

CDPv2 packets are sent by default. CDP also sends and receives CDPv1 packets if the device with which CDP is interacting does not process CDPv2 packets.

CDPv2 adds device information over CDPv1. The additional information that is contained in the CDPv2 messages relates to Native VLAN, VLAN Trunking Protocol (VTP) Management Domain, Ethernet Duplex, and other features.

Task ID

Operations

cdp

read, write

Examples

The following example shows how to set a networking device to send and receive only CDPv1 advertisements:

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config)# cdp advertise v1
       

The following example shows how to restore the default condition (sending and receiving CDPv2 advertisements):

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config)# no cdp advertise
                     

Related Commands

Command

Description

cdp

Enables the Cisco Discovery Protocol globally or on an interface.

show cdp

Displays global Cisco Discovery Protocol information, including CDP version, timer, and holdtime information.

cdp holdtime

To specify the time for which the receiving device should hold a Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) packet from your networking device before discarding it, use the cdp holdtime command in global configuration mode. To remove the cdp holdtime command from the configuration file and restore the system to its default condition with respect to this command, use the no form of this command.

cdp holdtime seconds

no cdp holdtime

Syntax Description

seconds

Holdtime to be sent in the CDP update packets, in seconds. Range is 10 to 255.

Command Default

seconds : 180

Command Modes

Global configuration

Command History

Release

Modification

Release 2.0

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

CDP packets are sent with a time-to-live value or holdtime, that is nonzero after an interface is enabled.

The CDP holdtime must be set to a higher number of seconds than the time between CDP transmissions, which is set using the cdp time command.

Task ID

Task ID

Operations

cdp

read, write

Examples

The following example shows how to specify that the CDP packets sent from the networking device are held by the receiving device for 60 seconds before being discarded. You might want to set the holdtime lower than the default setting of 180 seconds if information about your networking device changes often and you want the receiving devices to purge this information more quickly.

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config)# cdp holdtime 60
