Introduced : BIG-IP_v9.0
Sets the states indicating whether automatic detection of edge port status for the specified interfaces. When automatic edge port detection is enabled on an interface, the BIG-IP monitors the interface for incoming STP, RSTP, or MSTP packets. If no such packets are received for a sufficient period of time (about 3 seconds), the interface is automatically given edge port status. When automatic edge port detection is disabled on an interface, the BIG-IP never gives the interface edge port status automatically. By default, automatic edge port detection is enabled on all interfaces.
