Property Value

Type: System.Int64

An Int64 value that specifies the total number of forwarded packets.

If the local computer is not a router, the value returned by this property includes packets that were successfully source-routed via the local computer. Source routing is an IP option whereby the source of the packet can specify the route to the destination address.

The following code example displays statistics for received IP packets.

public static void ShowInboundIPStatistics()
{
     IPGlobalProperties properties = IPGlobalProperties.GetIPGlobalProperties();
     IPGlobalStatistics ipstat = properties.GetIPv4GlobalStatistics();
     Console.WriteLine("  Inbound Packet Data:");
     Console.WriteLine("      Received ............................ : {0}", 
     ipstat.ReceivedPackets);
     Console.WriteLine("      Forwarded ........................... : {0}", 
     ipstat.ReceivedPacketsForwarded);
     Console.WriteLine("      Delivered ........................... : {0}", 
     ipstat.ReceivedPacketsDelivered);
     Console.WriteLine("      Discarded ........................... : {0}", 
     ipstat.ReceivedPacketsDiscarded);   
}
