IPGlobalProperties.GetIPv4GlobalStatistics Method

Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Provides Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) statistical data for the local computer.

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

public abstract IPGlobalStatistics GetIPv4GlobalStatistics ()
public abstract IPGlobalStatistics GetIPv4GlobalStatistics ()
public abstract function GetIPv4GlobalStatistics () : IPGlobalStatistics

Return Value

An IPGlobalStatistics object that provides IPv4 traffic statistics for the local computer.

Exception typeCondition

NetworkInformationException

The call to the Win32 function GetIpStatistics failed.

IPv4 is a network layer protocol that is responsible for routing data packets from its source computer to its destination.

For details on the IP traffic statistics available to applications, see the IPGlobalStatistics class documentation. Note that the object returned by this method reflects the statistics as of the time the IPGlobalStatistics object is created. This information is not updated dynamically.

The following code example displays IP statistics for the local computer.

public static void ShowIPStatistics(NetworkInterfaceComponent version)
{
    IPGlobalProperties properties = IPGlobalProperties.GetIPGlobalProperties();
    IPGlobalStatistics ipstat = null;
    switch (version)

             ipstat = properties.GetIPv4GlobalStatistics();

            break;
