You didn't give us enough details. What libcurl version on what OS? And are
you using the easy or the multi interfaces?

Assuming you use the easy interface, then each easy handle will hold a pool of
connections so you should strive to re-use the same easy handle as much and as
far as possible to get persistent connections, DNS cache and more.
