UdpStatistics Class

Provides User Datagram Protocol (UDP) statistical data.


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

public abstract class UdpStatistics

The UdpStatistics type exposes the following members.

Protected methodUdpStatisticsInitializes a new instance of the UdpStatistics class.

Public propertyDatagramsReceivedGets the number of User Datagram Protocol (UDP) datagrams that were received.
Public propertyDatagramsSentGets the number of User Datagram Protocol (UDP) datagrams that were sent.
Public propertyIncomingDatagramsDiscardedGets the number of User Datagram Protocol (UDP) datagrams that were received and discarded because of port errors.
Public propertyIncomingDatagramsWithErrorsGets the number of User Datagram Protocol (UDP) datagrams that were received and discarded because of errors other than bad port information.
Public propertyUdpListenersGets the number of local endpoints that are listening for User Datagram Protocol (UDP) datagrams.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Instances of this class are returned by the GetUdpIPv4Statistics and GetUdpIPv6Statistics methods to give applications access to UDP traffic information.

The information in this class correlates to the management information objects described in

The following code example displays the UDP statistics for the specified address family.

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");
        case NetworkInterfaceComponent.IPv6:
            udpStat = properties.GetUdpIPv6Statistics();
            Console.WriteLine("UDP IPv6 Statistics");
            throw new ArgumentException("version");
        //    break;
    Console.WriteLine("  Datagrams Received ...................... : {0}", 
    Console.WriteLine("  Datagrams Sent .......................... : {0}", 
    Console.WriteLine("  Incoming Datagrams Discarded ............ : {0}", 
    Console.WriteLine("  Incoming Datagrams With Errors .......... : {0}", 
    Console.WriteLine("  UDP Listeners ........................... : {0}",
