curl_easy_getinfo — extract information from a curl handle

Synopsis

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_getinfo(CURL *curl, CURLINFO info, ... );

Description

Request internal information from the curl session with this function.  The third argument MUST be a pointer to a long, a pointer to a char *, a pointer to a struct curl_slist * or a pointer to a double (as this documentation describes further down).  The data pointed-to will be filled in accordingly and can be relied upon only if the function returns CURLE_OK.  Use this function AFTER a performed transfer if you want to get transfer related data.

You should not free the memory returned by this function unless it is explicitly mentioned below.

Times

An overview of the six time values available from curl_easy_getinfo()

curl_easy_perform()
    |
    |--NAMELOOKUP
    |--|--CONNECT
    |--|--|--APPCONNECT
    |--|--|--|--PRETRANSFER
    |--|--|--|--|--STARTTRANSFER
    |--|--|--|--|--|--TOTAL
    |--|--|--|--|--|--REDIRECT
NAMELOOKUP

CURLINFO_NAMELOOKUP_TIME. The time it took from the start until the name resolving was completed.

CONNECT

CURLINFO_CONNECT_TIME. The time it took from the start until the connect to the remote host (or proxy) was completed.

APPCONNECT

CURLINFO_APPCONNECT_TIME. The time it took from the start until the SSL connect/handshake with the remote host was completed. (Added in in 7.19.0)

PRETRANSFER

CURLINFO_PRETRANSFER_TIME. The time it took from the start until the file transfer is just about to begin. This includes all pre-transfer commands and negotiations that are specific to the particular protocol(s) involved.

STARTTRANSFER

CURLINFO_STARTTRANSFER_TIME. The time it took from the start until the first byte is received by libcurl.

TOTAL

CURLINFO_TOTAL_TIME. Total time of the previous request.

REDIRECT

CURLINFO_REDIRECT_TIME. The time it took for all redirection steps include name lookup, connect, pretransfer and transfer before final transaction was started. So, this is zero if no redirection took place.

Return Value

If the operation was successful, CURLE_OK is returned. Otherwise an appropriate error code will be returned.
