  • online-services. Consider network settings and location which are chosen for the speed test. 

2. Compare the delivery speed from CDN and the origin server.

3. If the analysis confirmed issues with content delivery speed from CDN, revise CDN-resource's settings.

 

CDN-resource's settings checking 

1. Make sure that you don’t use a VPN or proxy. 
VPN affects the CDN Geo-balancing and you may receive content from a not optimal edge with lower speed.

2. Make sure that content is being cached. 
The cache rate is presented by Cache Hit Ratio reportIf you noticed that the cache rate is lowuse our instructions to analyze and solve this issue. 

3. If an issue with content delivery speed occurs with large fileswe recommend you to use Large files delivery optimization and consider content compression on CDN or the origin-server.

 

Diagnostic information for technical support

If you revised your CDN resource's settings but are still unsatisfied with the download speedcontact Technical Support (support@gcorelabs.com) and provide the following information:
