CURLMOPT_MAX_TOTAL_CONNECTIONS (3)

Name

CURLMOPT_MAX_TOTAL_CONNECTIONS - max simultaneously open connections

Synopsis

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLMcode  curl_multi_setopt(CURLM  *handle, CURLMOPT_MAX_TOTAL_CONNEC-
TIONS, long amount);

Description

curl_multi_setopt options                    CURLMOPT_MAX_TOTAL_CONNECTIONS(3)



NAME
       CURLMOPT_MAX_TOTAL_CONNECTIONS - max simultaneously open connections

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLMcode  curl_multi_setopt(CURLM  *handle, CURLMOPT_MAX_TOTAL_CONNEC-
       TIONS, long amount);

DESCRIPTION
       Pass a long for the amount. The set number will be used as the  maximum
       number  of  simultaneously  open  connections in total using this multi
       handle. For each new session, libcurl will open a new connection up  to
       the  limit  set by CURLMOPT_MAX_TOTAL_CONNECTIONS(3). When the limit is
       reached, the sessions will be pending until there are available connec-
       tions.  If CURLMOPT_PIPELINING(3) is enabled, libcurl will try to pipe-
       line or use multiplexing if the host is capable of it.

DEFAULT
       The default value is 0, which means that there is no limit. It is  then
       simply controlled by the number of easy handles added.

PROTOCOLS
       All

EXAMPLE
       CURLM *m = curl_multi_init();
       /* never do more than 15 connections */
       curl_multi_setopt(m, CURLMOPT_MAX_TOTAL_CONNECTIONS, 15L);

AVAILABILITY
       Added in 7.30.0

RETURN VALUE
       Returns  CURLM_OK  if the option is supported, and CURLM_UNKNOWN_OPTION
       if not.
