Abstract

This study concerned on examining network matrices over user datagram protocol (UDP). The current challenges associated with network performance and streaming of packets was the main motivation for the researchers. A review of UDP was given with the relation to its network performance. We found UDP offer a minimal, unreliable, best-effort and message-passing transport to applications. Hence, a further examination of its performance was performed using NS2 on aspects related to traffic size and traffic load. The simulation result revealed that when establishing communication over UDP, it was noticed that changing packet size and traffic load has a small effect on UDP performance in which it was found a minimal associated end system state.
