IPGlobalProperties.GetUdpIPv6Statistics Method

Provides User Datagram Protocol/Internet Protocol version 6 (UDP/IPv6) statistical data for the local computer.

Namespace:  System.Net.NetworkInformation
Assemblies:   System (in System.dll)
  System.Net.NetworkInformation (in System.Net.NetworkInformation.dll)

public abstract UdpStatistics GetUdpIPv6Statistics()

Return Value

Type: System.Net.NetworkInformation.UdpStatistics
A UdpStatistics object that provides UDP/IPv6 traffic statistics for the local computer.


The call to the Win32 function GetUdpStatistics failed.


The local computer is not running an operating system that supports IPv6.

UDP is a connectionless transport layer protocol that is responsible for sending and receiving datagrams. It is defined in IETF RFC 768.

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

The following example displays the UDP/IP statistics for the local computer.

public static void ShowUdpStatistics(NetworkInterfaceComponent version)
    IPGlobalProperties properties = IPGlobalProperties.GetIPGlobalProperties();
    UdpStatistics udpStat = null;

    switch (version)
        case NetworkInterfaceComponent.IPv4:
            udpStat = properties.GetUdpIPv4Statistics();
            Console.WriteLine("UDP IPv4 Statistics");
        case NetworkInterfaceComponent.IPv6:
            udpStat = properties.GetUdpIPv6Statistics();
            Console.WriteLine("UDP IPv6 Statistics");
            throw new ArgumentException("version");
        //    break;
    Console.WriteLine("  Datagrams Received ...................... : {0}", 
    Console.WriteLine("  Datagrams Sent .......................... : {0}", 
    Console.WriteLine("  Incoming Datagrams Discarded ............ : {0}", 
    Console.WriteLine("  Incoming Datagrams With Errors .......... : {0}", 
    Console.WriteLine("  UDP Listeners ........................... : {0}",
