Lldpnetmap is a utility that provides VMware vSphere administrators with a list ESXi hosts and the physical switches they are connected to. 

lldpnetmap uses the link layer discovery protocol (LLDP) to uncover the host-switch connections. Administrators can run lldpnetmap from either the Ruby vSphere Console -- a Fling command interface which is implemented in vSphere 5.5 -- or from the ESXi Shell.

VMware introduced support for the link layer discovery protocol in vSphere 5.0.0.
