Namespace:  System.Net.NetworkInformation
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)
public abstract IcmpV6Statistics GetIcmpV6Statistics()

Return Value

Type: System.Net.NetworkInformation.IcmpV6Statistics
An IcmpV6Statistics object that provides ICMP version 6 traffic statistics for the local computer.

The local computer's operating system is not Windows XP or later.

ICMP version 6 is a set of messages for use with Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). ICMP is used by IPv6 nodes to report errors encountered in processing data packets and to perform other Internet layer functions. ICMP version 6 is defined in IETF RFC 1885.

The IPv6 protocol is not supported for computers with Windows 2000 or earlier operating systems.

For details on the ICMP version 6 traffic statistics available to applications, see the IcmpV6Statistics class documentation. Note that the IcmpV6Statistics object returned by this method reflects the statistics as of the time the object is created. This information is not updated dynamically.

The following example displays the current ICMPv6 statistics.

public static void ShowIcmpV6Statistics()
{
    IPGlobalProperties properties = IPGlobalProperties.GetIPGlobalProperties();
    IcmpV6Statistics stat = properties.GetIcmpV6Statistics();
    Console.WriteLine("ICMP V6 Statistics:");
