Property Value

Type: System.Int64

An Int64 value that specifies the total number of incoming packets that have been discarded.

The value returned by this property includes only those packets that were discarded even though they did not contain errors that prevented reassembly or delivery. Typically, packets in this category are discarded because of insufficient buffer space.

The following code example displays statistics for received IP packets.

public static void ShowInboundIPStatistics()
{
     IPGlobalProperties properties = IPGlobalProperties.GetIPGlobalProperties();
     IPGlobalStatistics ipstat = properties.GetIPv4GlobalStatistics();
     Console.WriteLine("  Inbound Packet Data:");
     Console.WriteLine("      Received ............................ : {0}", 
     ipstat.ReceivedPackets);
     Console.WriteLine("      Forwarded ........................... : {0}", 
     ipstat.ReceivedPacketsForwarded);
     Console.WriteLine("      Delivered ........................... : {0}", 
     ipstat.ReceivedPacketsDelivered);
     Console.WriteLine("      Discarded ........................... : {0}", 
     ipstat.ReceivedPacketsDiscarded);   
}
