This section describes the UDP agent which is a collection agent available in Real-Time workflows. 

The UDP collection agent allows data to be collected and inserted into a workflow, using the standard UDP protocol. It is also possible to send responses back to the source in form of a bytearray or in the case with several connections, it can be sent as a UDR containing a response field. All response handling is done using APL commands.

The UDP collection agent supports IPv4 and IPv6 environments. The UDP protocol has been implemented according to RFC 768.

Upon activation, the collector binds to the defined port and awaits incoming UDP packets. The collector has a built-in decoding functionality that supports any format defined in the Ultra Format Editor.
