IcmpV4Statistics.SourceQuenchesReceived Property

Gets the number of Internet Control Message Protocol version 4 (ICMPv4) Source Quench messages that were received.

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

public abstract long SourceQuenchesReceived { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int64
An Int64 value that specifies the total number of Source Quench messages that were received.

Source Quench messages are sent when a packet was discarded because of insufficient space in the output queue. A destination computer can also send a Source Quench message if packets arrive too quickly to be processed. The source quench message is a request to the host to cut back the rate at which it is sending traffic to the Internet destination.

The following example displays the value of this property.

public static void ShowSourceQuenchData()
    IPGlobalProperties properties = IPGlobalProperties.GetIPGlobalProperties();
    IcmpV4Statistics statistics = properties.GetIcmpV4Statistics();
    Console.WriteLine("  Source Quenches ..................... Sent: {0,-10}   Received: {1,-10}",
        statistics.SourceQuenchesSent, statistics.SourceQuenchesReceived);
void ShowSourceQuenchData()
    IPGlobalProperties* properties = IPGlobalProperties::GetIPGlobalProperties();
    IcmpV4Statistics* statistics = properties->GetIcmpV4Statistics();
    Console::WriteLine(S"  Source Quenches ..................... Sent: {0,-10}   Received: {1,-10}",
        __box(statistics->SourceQuenchesSent), __box(statistics->SourceQuenchesReceived));
