Hi Steven ,

I want UDP transport for Unicast communication. The input events are coming at high rate and need to be processed in minimum time.
As I understand, UDP transport can provide better speed than TCP transport for this application.

It is not multicast but UNICAST use case, thats why  I don't think of  PGM .
Your help highly appreciated.
Please comment.
Thanks & Regards,

Hi Santosh,

  Please explain your usage case, are you after unicast, broadcast, or
multicast?  Are you after reliable or unreliable delivery?

What are your goals by selecting UDP over TCP or PGM?
