CURLOPT_MAXAGE_CONN(3)	   curl_easy_setopt options	CURLOPT_MAXAGE_CONN(3)

NAME
       CURLOPT_MAXAGE_CONN - max idle time allowed for reusing a connection

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode	 curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle,	CURLOPT_MAXAGE_CONN, long max-
       age);

DESCRIPTION
       Pass a long as parameter	containing maxage - the	maximum	time  in  sec-
       onds that you allow an existing connection to have to be	considered for
       reuse for this request.

       The "connection cache" that holds previously used connections.  When  a
       new request is to be done, it will consider any connection that matches
       for reuse. The CURLOPT_MAXAGE_CONN(3) limit prevents libcurl from  try-
       ing  very  old connections for reuse, since old connections have	a high
       risk of not working and thus trying them	 is  a	performance  loss  and
       sometimes service loss due to the difficulties to figure	out the	situa-
       tion. If	a connection is	found in the cache that	is older than this set
       maxage, it will instead be closed.

DEFAULT
       Default maxage is 118 seconds.

PROTOCOLS
       All

EXAMPLE
       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl)	{
	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");

	 /* only allow 30 seconds idle time */
	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_MAXAGE_CONN, 30L);

	 curl_easy_perform(curl);
       }
