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.
