public abstract long OutputPacketsDiscarded { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int64

An Int64 value that specifies the total number of outgoing packets that have been discarded.

The data returned by this property does not include packets discarded because of errors that made the packets undeliverable. Packets included in this data are typically discarded due to network issues, such as insufficient buffer space.

The following code example displays statistics for outbound IP packets.


public static void ShowOutboundIPStatistics()
{
    IPGlobalProperties properties = IPGlobalProperties.GetIPGlobalProperties();
    IPGlobalStatistics ipstat = properties.GetIPv4GlobalStatistics();
    Console.WriteLine("  Outbound Packet Data:");
    Console.WriteLine("      Requested ........................... : {0}", 
        ipstat.OutputPacketRequests);
    Console.WriteLine("      Discarded ........................... : {0}", 
        ipstat.OutputPacketsDiscarded);
    Console.WriteLine("      No Routing Discards ................. : {0}", 
        ipstat.OutputPacketsWithNoRoute);
    Console.WriteLine("      Routing Entry Discards .............. : {0}", 
        ipstat.OutputPacketRoutingDiscards);   
}
