CURLOPT_STREAM_WEIGHT

Section: curl_easy_setopt options (3)
Updated: May 31, 2017
Index Return to Main Contents

 

NAME

CURLOPT_STREAM_WEIGHT - set numerical stream weight  

SYNOPSIS

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_STREAM_WEIGHT, long weight);  

DESCRIPTION

Set the long weight to a number between 1 and 256.

When using HTTP/2, this option sets the individual weight for this particular stream used by the easy handle. Setting and using weights only makes sense and is only usable when doing multiple streams over the same connections, which thus implies that you use CURLMOPT_PIPELINING(3).

This option can be set during transfer and will then cause the updated weight info get sent to the server the next time a HTTP/2 frame is sent to the server.

See section 5.3 of RFC 7540 for protocol details: https://httpwg.github.io/specs/rfc7540.html#StreamPriority

Streams with the same parent should be allocated resources proportionally based on their weight. So if you have two streams going, stream A with weight 16 and stream B with weight 32, stream B will get two thirds (32/48) of the available bandwidth (assuming the server can send off the data equally for both streams).  

DEFAULT

If nothing is set, the HTTP/2 protocol itself will use its own default which is 16.  

PROTOCOLS

HTTP/2  

EXAMPLE

CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
CURL *curl2 = curl_easy_init(); /* a second handle */
if(curl) {
  curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "https://example.com/one");
  curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_STREAM_WEIGHT, 10L);

  /* the second has twice the weight */
  curl_easy_setopt(curl2, CURLOPT_URL, "https://example.com/two");
  curl_easy_setopt(curl2, CURLOPT_STREAM_WEIGHT, 20L);

  /* then add both to a multi handle and transfer them! */
}
 

AVAILABILITY

Added in 7.46.0  

RETURN VALUE

Returns CURLE_OK if the option is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not.
