LLDP via SNMP

My experience with Juniper has been mixed, experience with 12.X and 13.X made me wonder if I had a poor understanding of how to do a proper decode or if Juniper's implementation itself had issues as I would often get incomplete results.

We've now grab over XML and have been pleased with that choice to the point I no longer see it as a "resort" but the most efficient way for us to move forward.  I used to open JTAC cases on each SNMP problem I'd come across [ CoS, mac-accounting ] and it generally wasn't a good use of our time.

We use Observium for most of our SNMP monitoring, and it correctly pulls
LLDP and CDP data from all of our Cisco and Arista gear.
