This project represents a LLDP frame generator. Based on Command Line commands, users can issue different LLDP frames containing different TLVs.
The ussage mode is a combination between a classic CLI command(e.g. ping, traceroute) and a command issued on a Cisco device where the user can interogate everytime
the application for possible commands.

The purpose of this project is to test the behavior of different LLDP agents in difficult situations. Based on this application, mutiple automated tests can be made for testing the behavior of a LLDP neighbor.
Example of tests:
1. Sending a large number of LLDP frames each containing all TLVs, each TLV having a large amount of informations.
2. Sending a large number of LLDP frames at a short interval and inspect the LLDP neighbor's database.
3. Try to overload some TLVs(adding more information than is permited) and inspect neighbor's database.
