A Datagram is one single UDP data package. See also: Segment
Another term used to describe an information packet.
A protocal known as the User Datagram Protocol (UDP). It is an internet standard protocol that allows an application program on one machine to send a datagram to an application program on another machine. UDP uses the Internet Protocol to deliver datagrams. Conceptually, the important difference between UDP and IP is that UDP messages include a protocol port number, allowing the sender to distinguish among multiple destinations (application programs) on the remote machines. In practice, UDP also includes a checksum over the data being sent.
packet of data or type of socket that models connectionless, unreliable byte stream communication
A packet of information and associated delivery information, such as the destination address, that is routed through a packet-switching network.
The unit of transmission in the network layer (such as IP). A datagram may be encapsulated in one or more packets passed to the data link layer.
The basic unit of information passed across the Internet. It contains a source and destination address along with data. Large messages are broken down into a sequence of IP datagrams.
information is passed around the Internet in blocks of data, each block carrying the IP address of the sender and of the destination - at the destination, the datagrams have to be joined together in the correct order to recreate the original data
Packet of data which can be delivered through a packet-switched system without reference to previous packets addressed to the same destination.
Message routing method used in packet switching where every packet is transferred independently from the previous packet in the same message
Describes a communications protocol or transport in which data packets are routed independently of each other and may follow different routes and arrive in a different order from which they were sent. UDP and IPX are examples of transport-layer datagram protocols. Contrast with streaming.
connectionless, unreliable messages of a fixed, typically small maximum length
"Datagram" is also known as Data Packet or Network Message Datagram is a unit of information that, apart from the data, also contains address information, which tells the network where the data must be sent and who the sender is. The datagram is thus like an addressed envelope with its contents.
Data unit used by a protocol in non connection mode. The sending of a datagram isn't reliable because non mechanism will verify if data are transmitted.
A block of data that can travel from one Internet site to another without relying on an earlier exchange between the source and destination computers.
A message that is sent when no connection has been established between two communicating hosts. Each message is treated as an independent unit.
A packet of computer-generated information that includes a complete destination address provided by the user, not the network, along with whatever data the packet carries.
A small collection of data, typically no more than about a kilobyte, which has been packaged for transport across a network path. A datagram is the basic unit of network transport, containing the source and destination address, along with other information for use by the various network layers.
A message consisting of content and all of the information needed to deliver the content between one system and another. Datagrams are sent using the User Datagram Protocol, or UDP. See also UDP.

A formatted set of electronic data used in communication between computer systems. The datagram consists of two parts: the data proper, which may be part of a longer message; and the header, which indicates the source, the destination, the type of data, and other information.
Packet or short message transmitted through network without previously setting up a connection. Different datagrams are handled independently of each other. In packet switching, a self-contained packet, independent of other packets, that does not require acknowledgment and that carries information sufficient for routing from the originating data terminal equipment (DTE), without relying on earlier exchanges between the DTEs and the network.
A finite-length packet with sufficient information to be independently routed from source to destination.
A packet of data and other delivery information that is routed through a packet-switched network or transmitted on a local area network.
A datagram is a discrete package of data and headers that contain addresses, which is the basic unit of transmission across an IP network. You might also hear this called a "packet".
An unacknowledged packet of data sent to another network destination. The destination can be another device directly reachable on the local area network (LAN) or a remote destination reachable using routed delivery through a packet-switched network.
A block of data that is "smart" enough (actually, which carries enough information) to travel from one Internet site to another without having to rely on earlier exchanges between the source and destination computers.
A packet of information used in a connectionless network service that is routed to its destination using an address included in the datagram's header.
Transmission unit at the IP level. A unit of data transferred between two users of the connectionless-mode service. See also packet.
A packet format with Internet headers defined by the Internet Protocol (IP). Datagrams are self-contained, independent entities carrying sufficient information to be routed from the source to the destination computer without relying on earlier exchanges between this source and destination computer and the transporting network. Datagrams are small and of a fixed size. See also data packet.
A communication channel that uses information routed through a packet-switching network. This information includes separate packets of information and the delivery information associated with those packets, such as the destination address. In a packet-switching network, data packets are routed independently of one another and may follow different routes. They may also arrive in a different order from the one in which they were sent.
A method of sending data in which parts of the message are sent in random order. The recipient machine has the task of reassembling the parts in the correct sequence. The datagram is a connectionless, single packet message or item of data that can traverse a network at OS I Level Three, the Network Layer. It typically does not involve end-to-end session establishment or delivery-confirmation acknowledgment. As well as the information within the datagram, there is a destination network address and usually a source network address.
A unit of data that is transmitted across a network by the connectionless service of a transport provider. In addition to user data, a datagram includes the information needed for its delivery. It is self-contained, in that it has no relationship to any datagrams previously or successively transmitted.
"Each packet is treated as an individual entity, having no logical or sequential relation to any other packet." (qtd. in Novell 2-1)
A packet (encapsulated with a frame containing information), which is transmitted in a packet-switching network from source to destination
A method of sending data in which some parts of the message are sent in random order. The destination computer has the task of reassembling the parts in the correct sequence. The datagram is a connectionless, single packet message used by the Internet Protocol (IP). A datagram is comprised of a source network address, a destination network address, and information.
The unit transmitted between a pair of internet modules. Data, called datagrams, from sources to destinations. The Internet Protocol does not provide a reliable communication facility. There are no acknowledgments either end-to-end or hop-by-hop. There is no error no retransmissions. There is no flow control. See IP.
In TCP/IP networks, datagram is a synonym for packet.
Way of transport of packages where the packages are enrutan independently and been able to follow different routes, thus is no guarantee in the delivery sequence.
Data sent over a network. A datagram contains not only user data, but also all the necessary header information for the data to reach its intended destination.
A unit of data comprising a complete logical message to be sent from one datagram node to all others on a datagram route.
A self-contained package of data carrying enough information to be routed from source to destination without reliance on earlier exchanges between source and destination or the transporting network.
A TCP/IP or IPX message that contains Internet source and destination addresses and data which is used to route the packet through a network. Datagrams are the primary information units used on the Internet.
A packet of data sent to a receiving computer without warning, error checking, or other control information.
The unit transmitted between a pair of Internet modules. The Internet Protocol provides for transmitting blocks of data, called datagrams, from sources to destinations.
The simplest message that MQSeries supports. This type of message does not require a reply.
A self-contained, independent entity of data carrying sufficient information to be routed from the source to the destination computer without reliance on earlier exchanges between this source and destination computer and the transporting network. This entity has given rise to several joking and serious other sorts of communications: a "bounce-o-gram," for example, is a message from an automated mailer telling you that your mail has bounced. A "nastygram" is an unpleasant message, usually e-mail but sometimes in news, which has unpleasant contents. See also packet. (Term coined by J. Postel.) WWWebfx Home Page
A self-contained data packet carrying its own address information so it can be independently routed from the source to the destination computer without reliance on earlier exchanges between the source and destination computer and the transporting network.
A logical entity containing an IP header and the IP message contained within. IP protocols communicate through datagrams, but these are sometimes fragmented on links. Datagrams are sent as packets on the link layer, and a datagram may be sent as one or many packets.
a packet of information and delivery data that is routed on a network.
A packet of data that contains information, plus origin and destination addresses. Generally used in reference to UDP and ICMP packets when talking about IP protocols.
A self-contained, independent entity of data carrying sufficientinformation to be routed from the source to the destinationcomputer without reliance on earlier exchanges between this sourceand destination computer and the transporting network. See also:frame, packet.[Source: J. Postel] Dataset
A form of packet switching in which the packets that make up the conversation do not all traverse the same path through the network, thus improving the robustness and security of the network.
A packet of computer-generated information that minimally contains the source and destination address of the computers in communication. Protocols, like TCP/IP,often integrate datagrams with higher l ... more
One packet, or unit, of information that includes relevant delivery information, such as the destination address, that is sent through a packet-switching network. See also: packet
A message of fixed maximum length, sent without network provided facilities for assuring its accuracy, delivery, or correct sequencing with respect to related messages, that carries the full destination address used for routing.
