curl_easy_getinfo - extract information from a curl handle
CURLcode curl_easy_getinfo(CURL *curl, CURLINFO info, ... );
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.

An overview of the six time values available from curl_easy_getinfo() curl_easy_perform() | |--NAMELOOKUP |--|--CONNECT |--|--|--APPCONNECT |--|--|--|--PRETRANSFER |--|--|--|--|--STARTTRANSFER |--|--|--|--|--|--TOTAL |--|--|--|--|--|--REDIRECT
CURLINFO_NAMELOOKUP_TIME. The time it took from the start until the name resolving was completed.
CURLINFO_CONNECT_TIME. The time it took from the start until the connect to the remote host (or proxy) was completed.
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)
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.
CURLINFO_STARTTRANSFER_TIME. The time it took from the start until the first byte is received by libcurl.
CURLINFO_TOTAL_TIME. Total time of the previous request.
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.
If the operation was successful, CURLE_OK is returned. Otherwise an appropriate error code will be returned.
