Dotcom-Monitor users have extensive control over their UDP monitoring and how DNS resolution is performed for monitoring tasks.
The User Datagram Protocol (UDP) is part of the core suite of Internet protocol suite. UDP is primarily used in video and voice streaming applications, such as, VoIP, video conferencing, and online gaming. UDP monitoring is more suitable when TCP would be too complex, too slow, or just unnecessary.
If a web application provides voice or video transfer over the Internet using UDP, UDP monitoring is effective for ensuring a UDP server is reachable. Our UDP monitoring solution can test UDP server availability by sending packets to a specified port and receiving a response.
