IPGlobalProperties.GetUdpIPv4Statistics Method

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

Provides User Datagram Protocol/Internet Protocol version 4 (UDP/IPv4) statistical data for the local computer.

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

public abstract UdpStatistics GetUdpIPv4Statistics ()
public abstract UdpStatistics GetUdpIPv4Statistics ()
public abstract function GetUdpIPv4Statistics () : UdpStatistics

Return Value

A UdpStatistics object that provides UDP/IPv4 traffic statistics for the local computer.

Exception typeCondition

NetworkInformationException

The call to the Win32 function GetUdpStatistics failed.

UDP is a connectionless transport layer protocol that is responsible for sending and receiving datagrams. It is defined in IETF RFC 768.

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

The following example displays the UDP/IP statistics for the local computer.

public static void ShowUdpStatistics(NetworkInterfaceComponent version)
{
    IPGlobalProperties properties = IPGlobalProperties.GetIPGlobalProperties();
    UdpStatistics udpStat = null;
    
    switch (version)
    {
        case NetworkInterfaceComponent.IPv4:
            udpStat = properties.GetUdpIPv4Statistics();
            Console.WriteLine("UDP IPv4 Statistics");
            break;
        case NetworkInterfaceComponent.IPv6:
            udpStat = properties.GetUdpIPv6Statistics();
            Console.WriteLine("UDP IPv6 Statistics");
            break;
        default:
            throw new ArgumentException("version");
            break;
    }
    Console.WriteLine("  Datagrams Received ...................... : {0}", 
        udpStat.DatagramsReceived);
    Console.WriteLine("  Datagrams Sent .......................... : {0}", 
        udpStat.DatagramsSent);
    Console.WriteLine("  Incoming Datagrams Discarded ............ : {0}", 
        udpStat.IncomingDatagramsDiscarded);
    Console.WriteLine("  Incoming Datagrams With Errors .......... : {0}", 
        udpStat.IncomingDatagramsWithErrors);
    Console.WriteLine("  UDP Listeners ........................... : {0}", 
        udpStat.UdpListeners);
    Console.WriteLine("");
}
