CURLMOPT_MAX_PIPELINE_LENGTH(3) Library Functions Manual CURLMOPT_MAX_PIPELINE_LENGTH(3)

CURLMOPT_MAX_PIPELINE_LENGTH - maximum number of requests in a pipeline

#include <curl/curl.h>
CURLMcode curl_multi_setopt(CURLM *handle, CURLMOPT_MAX_PIPELINE_LENGTH,
                            long max);

No function since pipelining was removed in 7.62.0.

Pass a long. The set max number is used as the maximum amount of outstanding requests in an HTTP/1.1 pipeline. This option is only used for HTTP/1.1 pipelining, not for HTTP/2 multiplexing.

When this limit is reached, libcurl creates another connection to the same host (see CURLMOPT_MAX_HOST_CONNECTIONS(3)), or queue the request until one

of the pipelines to the host is ready to accept a request. Thus, the total
CURLMOPT_MAX_PIPELINE_LENGTH(3).
