CURLINFO_NUM_CONNECTS(3)   curl_easy_getinfo options  CURLINFO_NUM_CONNECTS(3)

NAME

CURLINFO_NUM_CONNECTS - get number of created connections

SYNOPSIS

#include <curl/curl.h> CURLcode curl_easy_getinfo(CURL *handle, CURLINFO_NUM_CONNECTS, long *nump);

DESCRIPTION

Pass a pointer to a long to receive how many new connections libcurl had to create to achieve the previous transfer (only the successful connects are counted). Combined with CURLINFO_REDIRECT_COUNT(3) you are able to know how many times libcurl successfully reused existing connection(s) or not. See the connection options of curl_easy_setopt(3) to see how libcurl tries to make persistent connections to save time.

PROTOCOLS

EXAMPLE

CURL *curl = curl_easy_init(); if(curl) { CURLcode res; curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com"); curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1L); res = curl_easy_perform(curl); if(res == CURLE_OK) { long connects; res = curl_easy_getinfo(curl, CURLINFO_NUM_CONNECTS, &connects); if(res) printf("It needed %d connects\n", connects); } curl_easy_cleanup(curl); }

AVAILABILITY
