The website provides a job number and is redirected into another page for the results. Since, the code I have written is almost 500 lines, I am giving a general flow of the program and a short code which I think is the problematic area:

You should use the multi interface, it will automatically open a limited number of concurrent connections, correctly reuse them, etc. If you make a 1000 requests at once, Iím not surprised that your network, the server you are talking to or something else is overwhelmed and causes request failures.
