Also seems intended mainly to support DCBX, may be limited to Intel
ethernet adapters, may require Intel drivers, developed by and at Intel.
The canonical implementation seems to be lldpd, started when Debian ITP
and RFP for openlldp (no hyphen) went nowhere; also supports BSD, OS X,
and Solaris. http://vincentbernat.github.io/lldpd/
For Windows reporting, lldpd recommend
Network devices support SNMP so those tools can be used to query LLDP
info, and there may be clients available or portable to Cygwin, and
Windows apps available.
Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
