public abstract long TimeExceededMessagesSent { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int64

An Int64 value that specifies the total number of ICMP Time Exceeded messages sent.

A packet's Hop Limit determines how many times it can be forwarded before it is discarded. Each time a packet is forwarded, its Hop Limit value is decremented by one. When the Hop Limit reaches zero or when a router receives a packet with its Hop Limit set to zero, the packet is discarded and the source of the packet receives a Time Exceeded message indicating that the initial Hop Limit was too small or that the packet was caught in a routing loop.

The following example displays the value of this property.

public static void ShowIcmpV6TimeExceededData ()
{
     IPGlobalProperties properties = IPGlobalProperties.GetIPGlobalProperties();
    IcmpV6Statistics statistics = properties.GetIcmpV6Statistics();
    Console.WriteLine ("  TimeExceeded ........................ Sent: {0,-10}   Received: {1,-10}", 
        statistics.TimeExceededMessagesSent, statistics.TimeExceededMessagesReceived);
}
