ARGO with Magento, Will work better?

Hi Guys,

I would like to know if, with argo I will speed up my Magento Website.
Today I have lot of “wating time”, if you try to acess or test with GtMetrix you can see this.

The store will work well with Argo enable?

I tried to enable full caching some time ago, and discovery that did not work because Magento use cookies, for this, I need to choose the enterprise plan, but can’t afford it.

I´m located in Brazil and 100% of my clients are from Brazil, my VPS is from DreamHost.

Best Regards,

Argo’s best feature is speeding up connections over long distances.

If your visitor, Cloudflare datacenter, and web host are all near each other, it’s not going to do much. Since your DreamHost server is probably on the East Coast of the US, this might help. At $5/month (plus a little more for bandwidth overages) it might be worth trying for a month.

The bigger delay is usually the time it takes your web server to generate the page and deliver it. Argo isn’t going to help with that.

Can you try the following link to find out which datacenter you’re going through? Hopefully it’s local.

When you do the GTMetrix test you can look at the HTTP Response Headers for the cf-ray header that also has the three-letter code for your datacenter.

:wave: @fabiocposser,

The answer is, it depends. Argo smart routing looks for a faster route between the POP a user is connecting to and the origin. If there is a faster route, Argo will use that instead (which potentially improves TTFB and by extension overall load time). However there won’t always be a faster route for a given POP so in those instances routing& performance would remained unchanged.

I believe bypass cache on cookie is available on the Business plan as well.


Ok, thank you, I will try to check if have any difference.

How can I check the location of the datacenter?

uag=Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/70.0.3538.110 Safari/537.36

Ok thank you.

Yes, the Business plan has it, but is very high cost, not worth to me right now.

colo=MIA means it’s Miami (they use local airport codes).
