Property Value

Type: System.Int64
An Int64 value that specifies the total number of IP packets received and discarded due to errors in the header.

The value returned by this property includes packets discarded for non-address related issues in the header fields, such as bad checksums, time-to-live value exceeded, and incorrect IP options.

The following code example displays statistics for received IP packets with errors.


public static void ShowInboundIPErrors()
{
    IPGlobalProperties properties = IPGlobalProperties.GetIPGlobalProperties();
    IPGlobalStatistics ipstat = properties.GetIPv4GlobalStatistics();
    Console.WriteLine("  Inbound Packet Errors:");
    Console.WriteLine("      Header Errors ....................... : {0}", 
        ipstat.ReceivedPacketsWithHeadersErrors);
    Console.WriteLine("      Address Errors ...................... : {0}", 
        ipstat.ReceivedPacketsWithAddressErrors);
    Console.WriteLine("      Unknown Protocol Errors ............. : {0}", 
        ipstat.ReceivedPacketsWithUnknownProtocol);
}
