[Review]: Packet Drop vs Packet Loss – Linux

Packet Loss

Actually, Packet Loss occurs when one or more packet can’t reach their destination because of some issue such as link congestion, TCP can detect packet loss and send the packet again (During packet recovery process) but packet loss has impact on users, who are using streaming media application and actually all application that using unreliable protocols such as UDP.

Packet Drop is typically discarding packets on different layers after processing packets and packet drop is one of reasons of data loss in some conditions.
