DCBX TLV statistics


When you select Data Center Bridging Exchange (DCBX) Type Length Value (TLV) Statistics, these statistics appear:

  • Local statistics — The DCBX parameters configured on the controller at the factory.

  • Operational statistics — The DCBX parameters that result from DCBX negotiations.

  • Remote statistics — The DCBX parameters from the peer device that the controller is connected to, typically a switch.
