libcurl - No timeout
Date: Fri, 16 Jul 2004 21:52:54 -0400
I'm using libcurl to get data via https get on an interval basis. I sometimes find the threads, that perform the interval https gets, hanging. They are hanging in the select within the Transfer while loop. This prompted me to look into setting a timeout value and found CURLOPT_TIMEOUT. This however will timeout on the time connected, and not on the time it takes for the server to respond (killing off legitimate connections).
In trying to replicate this I wrote the following cgi script:
echo "Content-Type: text/html"
echo "Content-Length: 5"
while [ 1 ]
The connection will however timeout after a few minutes.
Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this, and avoid setting timeouts that kill legitimate connections?
Note: I'm using libcurl 7.12.0 for win32
