Thanks. I can definitely see what you’re talking about in there, this request taking 12 seconds seems like a big bummer:
…but on our side in our internal logs, we show we sent it in 6ms (the “x-nf-request-id” HTTP response header is a unique value that we can correlate to a specific request in our logs, and so I looked it up).
Was your internet generally working well at the time?
On my side I didn’t get any news from my last twitter attempt to solve this problem.
On our side, it turns out that putting CloudFlare on top of Netlify does significantly increase the TTFB performances. It is the exact same deployment, with a single toggle switched on CF side to enable the proxy.
Swyx should have given you both DNS domains (with/without cloudflare proxy) and told me you were studying the problem (fool+gerald), but no news for 1 month.
I feel like I gave you everything I can on my side, and can’t do anything more, except maybe paying 500€/month to solve this problem. CloudFlare is actually a way cheaper solution, and it’s what I end up recommending to my customers currently until this problem is solved. Despite Netlify saying CF on top of Netlify is useless, it turns out it’s not for me.
Hi there, thank you & other folks for your patience on this thread as we work to understand the underlying issues here. I know its frustrating to experience slow download times and we want to understand & do better.
We have been talking about this internally and are still looking into these issues, and hope to bring them up with relevant folks who work more closely with our infrastructure in the near future. We’ll update this thread here with any information - and if anything changes for any of you please do keep adding your thoughts here.
Not the quick-and-easy outcome we had all been hoping for - but we will keep looking into this.
Hello, is this issue in this thread only related to TTFB? Or also to content download times?
A few examples:
8.34 seconds to transfer 1.2mb:
4.56 seconds to transfer 780kb:
2.75 seconds to transfer 380kb:
TTFB is usually OK, between 200-300ms (not great). But I can’t really understand the transfer times being this high, as I’m loading other sites much more quickly. I’ve also tried on as many networks as I have access to with the same results. Is my problem related, or is this a different issue?
