It depends on the computer you are using.  The max UDP Packet size is the maximum buffer size.

well the maximum send buffer size on my computer is about 100000 bytes but I don't think a udp packet can go until that big. Or do you mean another kind of buffer size?

Hi blaze_wk,

Actually, the maximum UDP packet size is 64kb (65536 bytes). This is how it is defined in the standard. Usually a packet size of 1500 bytes is the default.

Cheers!

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

Yes it is, unless the underlying JVM doesn't allow it. However, in that case, you should still be able to specify the maximum size of the UDP packet in Java, and the JVM would chop it up in chunks supported by the JVM.

Nope, but in this day and age I can't for the life of me expect a JVM not to support the UDP standard. I think you will be safe.
