public abstract long PacketTooBigMessagesReceived { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int64
An Int64 value that specifies the total number of ICMP Packet Too Big messages received.

A router sends a Packet Too Big message when a packet cannot be forwarded because it is larger than the maximum transmission unit (MTU) of the outgoing link.

The following example displays the value of this property.

public static void ShowIcmpV6BigPacketData ()
    IPGlobalProperties properties = IPGlobalProperties.GetIPGlobalProperties();
    IcmpV6Statistics statistics = properties.GetIcmpV6Statistics();
    Console.WriteLine (" Too Big Packet ........................ Sent: {0,-10}   Received: {1,-10}", 
    statistics.PacketTooBigMessagesSent, statistics.PacketTooBigMessagesReceived);
void ShowIcmpV6BigPacketData ()
    IPGlobalProperties* properties = IPGlobalProperties::GetIPGlobalProperties();
    IcmpV6Statistics* statistics = properties->GetIcmpV6Statistics();
    Console::WriteLine (S" Too Big Packet ........................ Sent: {0,-10}   Received: {1,-10}",
        __box(statistics->PacketTooBigMessagesSent), __box(statistics->PacketTooBigMessagesReceived));
