Hi all, I had a couple of questions related to reading udp packets in Labview. I am receiving 100 - 200 Mbps of variably sized packets. The first byte in the packet specifies its size in bytes*4. 1) When I perform a read, I have no idea how much data to request, so I set an arbitrary size. It seems in doing this that I am getting multiple packets together and that I subsequently need to parse the data into packets after reading. Doing so seems to slow down the machine a bit and I'm nervous I'm dropping packets (see next point). I also tried reading only 1 byte, then reading X number of bytes based on that 1 byte, but that threw errors (I think it was error 113 about more data being available than I read). 2) How do I tell if I am overflowing the socket buffer? I am getting weird behavior that seems to indicate dropped packets occasionally but no error is coming out of the udp read function. Thanks, Jim
