I understand this as: many clients (different programs,
different hosts) connect to the same server and request the
same URL. The server cannot handle the load, so clients get
their answer with unacceptable delay in time.

I understand that you want to solve the problem with a proxy
which caches pages. But cURL is a client-only library, so
this question is out of context here; I think you are
misunderstanding what the multi API is for.

  In any case nothing can be said; you must try a solution
on your specific hardware and see what happens.
