Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

Public MustOverride ReadOnly Property SourceQuenchesReceived As Long

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 Shared Sub ShowSourceQuenchData() 
    Dim properties As IPGlobalProperties = IPGlobalProperties.GetIPGlobalProperties()
    Dim statistics As IcmpV4Statistics = properties.GetIcmpV4Statistics()
    Console.WriteLine("  Source Quenches ..................... Sent: {0,-10}   Received: {1,-10}", statistics.SourceQuenchesSent, statistics.SourceQuenchesReceived)

End Sub 'ShowSourceQuenchData
