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.
