UDP sockets Multiplexing/DemultiplexingAsk Question


There are already some questions regarding this, but I want to ask something very specific that does not seem to be covered by the others. So, I'm aware that the same UDP port (server) can be used by different users - the server stills knows where to deliver the appropriated packages. However, since the UDP port on the server is exactly the same for both users, does this mean that some delay can occur? For instance, if at exact same time 5 users want to use the same server socket and the connection is UDP based, then there will be a delay because the socket can't deal with the 5 connections at the same time. Is this correct? I know that, in practice, this would only happen with a great amount of connection, given that processing time of an UDP connection is faster than TCP, but it could potentially happen. Or am I wrong?
