Issue
A customer would like to know if PME supports the UDP protocol.

Product Line

Environment
supported communications protocols

Resolution
UDP is not supported by PME.  The User Database Protocol, provides no guarantees for message delivery and the UDP layer retains no state of UDP messages once sent. For this reason, UDP is referred to as an 'unreliable protocol' and is not suitable for real time data or historical data logs.
