UDLD (Unidirectional Link Detection) using for detecting optical fiber unidirectional link. It supports two modes of operation: normal mode(the default) and aggressive mode. In normal mode, UDLD can detect unidirectional links due to mis-connected interfaces. In aggressive mode, UDLD can also detect unidirectional links due to one-way traffic, twisted-pair links, and mis-connected interfaces. You can enable UDLD globally or on specific ports. When UDLD detectes uni-directional fault, the port status will be setted Disabled(UDLD) and down, and there is no udld neighbor. In addition, UDLD can detect the self loop port and disable this port. Self loop means TX links to RX on the same port. 

NOTE:

The hostname (set system hostname) of the devices at both ends of the UDLD cannot be the same. If they are the same, UDLD considers that there is a loop. The port status will be set to Disabled (UDLD) and down, and there will be no UDLD neighbor.

UDLD status when self loop link

The example is that tx connect with rx on the same port te-1/1/27. The udld status will be transmit-to-receive loop, and the port status will be setted Disabled(UDLD) and down, and there is no udld neighbor.

admin@Xorplus# run show udld neighbors
