**ironic-inspector** heavily relies on plugins for data processing. Even the
standard functionality is largely based on plugins. Set ``processing_hooks``
option in the configuration file to change the set of plugins to be run on
introspection data. Note that order does matter in this option, especially
introspection data. Note that order **does** matter in this option, especially
for hooks that have dependencies on other hooks.
These are plugins that are enabled by default and should not be disabled,

Processes LLDP data returned from inspection, parses TLVs from the
Basic Management (802.1AB), 802.1Q, and 802.3 sets and stores the
