Bug#605798: ITP: lldpad -- A Link Layer Discovery Protocol implementation

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@lists.debian.org

   Package name: lldpad
        Version: 0.9.38
Upstream Author: Intel Corporation
            URL: http://sourceforge.net/projects/e1000/

    Description: A Link Layer Discovery Protocol Implementation

The lldpad package is an implementation of the Link Layer Discovery Protocol
(LLDP).  It originated from Intel's Data Center Bridging (DCB) software - the
dcbd package.  The lldpad package adds LLDP support for all ports in addition
to DCB Exchange protocol (DCBX) support on DCB capable ports (as was provided
by dcbd).  Also, support for additional LLDP TLVs has been added.

DCB is a collection of emerging standards-based technologies designed to allow
Ethernet to support multiple types of traffic classes in the Data Center.
The DCBX functionality of this package is designed to work with the DCB kernel
interface (dcbnl in rtnetlink) that is included in the Linux kernel 2.6.29 or
higher.  The Intel ixgbe driver supports the dcbnl interface.
