Enabling FDP

A Ruckus device can be enabled to send FDP packets.

FDP is disabled by default on all interfaces. FDP can be enabled globally to apply to all interfaces. If FDP is to be disabled for an individual interface, the configuration is applied in interface configuration mode. This task shows how to enable FDP globally, set some optional FDP parameters, disable FDP on one interface and reenable FDP on the interface.
NOTE
FDP is not supported on port extender (PE) ports.
  1. Enter global configuration mode.
    device# configure terminal
  2. Globally enable FDP.
    device(config)# fdp run
  3. Change the FDP update timer to send an FDP update every 120 seconds.
    device(config)# fdp timer 120
    By default, FDP sends an update every 60 seconds.
  4. Change the FDP hold time to 360 seconds.
    device(config)# fdp holdtime 360
    By default, the FDP hold time is 180 seconds.
  5. Enter interface configuration mode.
    device(config)# interface ethernet 1/1/4
  6. Disable FDP on Ethernet interface 1/1/4.
    device(config-if-e1000-1/1/4)# no fdp enable
  7. Reenable FDP on Ethernet interface 1/1/4.
    device(config-if-e1000-1/1/4)# fdp enable

The following example enables FDP globally and sets the FDP timer and hold time. FDP is disabled on Ethernet interface 1/1/4.

device# configure terminal
device(config)# fdp run
device(config)# fdp timer 120
device(config)# fdp holdtime 360
device(config)# interface ethernet 1/1/4
device(config-if-e1000-1/1/4)# no fdp enable

The following example enables FDP globally and sets the FDP timer and hold time. FDP is disabled on Ethernet interface 1/4.

device# configure terminal
device(config)# fdp run
device(config)# fdp timer 120
device(config)# fdp holdtime 360
device(config)# interface ethernet 1/4
device(config-if-e1000-1/4)# no fdp enable
