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

       All

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);
       }
