ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol)

ICMP is a supporting protocol used by network devices to send error messages and operational information indicating success or failure to other devices involved in a traffic exchange (e.g., service or host is not available).

ICMP is not a transport protocol like TCP and UDP used to exchange data, nor is it used by end-users except when performing network diagnostics like ping and traceroute.
