UDP monitoring involves tracking and analyzing User Datagram Protocol (UDP) traffic within a network to ensure its stability and performance. It typically includes monitoring for packet loss, latency, and network congestion, using tools like UDP probes or packet sniffers. UDP monitoring helps identify issues in real-time applications such as video streaming, VoIP, and online gaming, ensuring a smooth user experience. It’s crucial for diagnosing problems and optimizing network configurations, even though UDP lacks some of the reliability features of TCP, making monitoring more challenging.
