UDP (User Datagram Protocol)

What is UDP?


A communications protocol computers use to transmit data over the network. It does not provide data delivery acknowledgment and is, therefore, not a reliable protocol.

In the world of NXLog

UDP is one of the many protocols NXLog supports. UDP is the transport protocol of the legacy BSD Syslog as described in RFC 3164, so this protocol can be advantageous to receive log messages from older devices that do not support other protocols. In the world of logging, UDP is also the preferred protocol when the reliability of log data delivery is not a primary concern.
