  Description     : implementation of IEEE 802.1ab (LLDP)

 LLDP is an industry standard protocol designed to supplant
 proprietary Link-Layer protocols such as Extreme's EDP (Extreme
 Discovery Protocol) and CDP (Cisco Discovery Protocol). The goal of
 LLDP is to provide an inter-vendor compatible mechanism to deliver
 Link-Layer notifications to adjacent network devices.

 This implementation provides LLDP sending and reception, supports
 VLAN and bond interfaces and includes an SNMP subagent that can
 interface to an SNMP agent through AgentX protocol.

 This daemon is also able to deal with CDP, SONMP and EDP protocol.

I have also an ITP on OpenLLDP (#488108) which is another
implementation. Unfortunately, some pieces were missing and upstream
seemed too busy to handle them. I have lost contact with upstream.

lldpd is a more complete implementation (but less portable, Linux
