Questions tagged [data]

For questions about network data, where the payload is the data that is carried on behalf of an application. It is usually of variable length, up to a maximum that is set by the network protocol and sometimes the equipment on the route. Use this tag when your question is about or involving a data transmission or a type of packet sent over a computer network. The structure of a data packet is also on topic.
