LLDP would be a godsend - please can we have it?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,


You can tell whether a techie is network-centric because they always want to ssee stuff like LLDP in use everywhere !


It's supported on most distributions, and well documented, and relatively low risk, please can we have it on Unraid?

As far as I can tell - as a multi-server for multiple years owner - it's about the only thing missing from Unraid.


I know I could run up a VM or (if I knew how) a docker perhaps, but that's a fudge & I'm not so keen on fudges as they always end up biting you.


Nerd tools seems like the obvious place for it.

It's so useful to confirm what's connected to what - "is it in the right port?" is sometimes the MOST important question, saves hours sometimes.

Bit like the picture attached (only with all thelldp.thumb.png.e7f031ef9b3db3239d00622bda6f6869.png information intact of course!)

Any chance maybe, pretty please?


keep up the brilliant work.

I found a few dockers on Dockerhub, as searched in "Apps".


One working version (signed) is:


You need to run it with network configured as "host".

It will grab some info & present it - such as the original hostname etc

You can add variables or adjust the ones provided.

Works as expected on my 3 unraid servers.



Still would be nice to have it as part of Nerd tools, where it really belongs, but this will do until then.

Nerd tools is a Community Plugin, you should ask the maintainer in the support thread.

This section is for requests to be integrated by Lime Technology on the core Unraid.

I' am allso dearly miss LLDPd as a core feature of unraid. Imho it should be a "normal" item in any Software Distribution witch is leaning towards networking. 

Or infrastructure. 

UnRaid is doing both according to my understanding 

Would be very happy to hear this as a added feature
