[p2p-hackers] How reliable is UDP?

Hi p2p-hackers,

I know that UDP traffic is not reliable by design. However, I wonder how
reliable UDP packets reach their destination. Does someone on the list
have experience with UDP packet loss? Is this usually in the range of a
percent or more or less? Or is it even a common case that all packets
arrive? Dave.
