JDP (Cisco CDP)

‎06-20-2008 03:03 AM

Don't think Juniper has a version of JDP same as cisco CDP.  It would be nice.  Anyone know of
anything in the works or something I am missing?

Hello Masood,

 

There is a vendor-neutral standard called Link-Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) ratified as IEEE 802.1AB.

Juniper supports it today but only in the EX-series ethernet switches:

 http://kb.juniper.net/CUSTOMERSERVICE/index?page=kbdetail&record_id=0252030e22f2b01180a8cfeaf005acf 

 

Having it in JUNOS (for other platforms than the EX-series) makes sense (to me) and might be seen in the future. If there is a business requirement, please mention it to your account team.

 

Regards,

We support LLDP on the J and SRX platforms with 10.1 and higher.  Limitation is that it is only supported on switch interfaces, not routed.

I do like to see a cdp for junos. In a mixed environment of Cisco Juniper how would one discover it's Cisco neighbors? What do you folks use? lldp is very nice to discover Juniper devices.

LLDP is a standard which is configurable on cisco devices too:

this is for cat4k, you should be able to find such documents for other platforms too.

"LLDP is nice for seeing Juniper devices"... LLDP is an open standard. It is great for seeing IP Phone configuration parameters also, such as Avaya for example. CDP on the otherhands, like FDP on Foundry/Brocade is aproprietary protocol with lesser capabilities than LLDP/LLDP-MED. One obscure feature I do like in CDP though is ODR (On Demand Routing) which is kind of a light weight routing protocol for hub and spoke networks that only requires CDP. Not sure many people know of that feature. Might be quite interesting to see Juniper enable something similar using LLDP perhaps.

Thanks Adam, this was helpful. I've been running the lldp command and only few interface neighbors were visible and i didn't understand why. Now i do understand that those are switched interfaces.

 

Kind regards

Michael
