CURLOPT_MAXCONNECTS(3)     curl_easy_setopt options     CURLOPT_MAXCONNECTS(3)




NAME

       CURLOPT_MAXCONNECTS - maximum connection cache size


SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode   curl_easy_setopt(CURL   *handle,  CURLOPT_MAXCONNECTS,  long
       amount);


DESCRIPTION

       Pass a long. The set amount will be the maximum  number  of  simultane-
       ously  open  persistent  connections that libcurl may cache in the pool
       associated with this handle. The default is 5,  and  there  isn't  much
       point in changing this value unless you are perfectly aware of how this
       works and changes libcurl's behaviour. This concerns connections  using
       any of the protocols that support persistent connections.

       When  reaching  the  maximum  limit,  curl closes the oldest one in the
       cache to prevent increasing the number of open connections.

       If you already have performed transfers with this curl handle,  setting
       a smaller CURLOPT_MAXCONNECTS(3) than before may cause open connections
       to get closed unnecessarily.

       If you add this easy handle to a multi  handle,  this  setting  is  not
       acknowledged,  and  you  must  instead use curl_multi_setopt(3) and the
       CURLMOPT_MAXCONNECTS(3) option.
