CURLOPT_LOW_SPEED_LIMIT(3) Library Functions Manual CURLOPT_LOW_SPEED_LIMIT(3)

CURLOPT_LOW_SPEED_LIMIT - low speed limit in bytes per second

#include <curl/curl.h>
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_LOW_SPEED_LIMIT,
                          long speedlimit);

Pass a long as parameter. It contains the average transfer speed in bytes per second that the transfer should be below during CURLOPT_LOW_SPEED_TIME(3) seconds for libcurl to consider it to be too slow and abort.
