What is Time to Live?

Time to Live (TTL) or the hop limit is a mechanism that limits the lifespan of data in a computer or network. TTL is generally implemented as a counter or time stamp attached to or embedded in the data. TTL value in an IP data packet tells a network router whether or not the packet has been in the network too long and should be discarded.
