Let’s assume I have a static file that’s accessed once every three days from a certain POP. Is it worth caching on Cloudflare?
Because Cloudflare openly admits to clearing your cached files before the TTL has expired if the content is not accessed frequently enough. So in such a scenario, it’s better to disable Cloudflare and go directly to the origin server, thus saving some processing time, am I right?
My example of one access every 3 days is exaggerated of course. But there must be some lower frequency limit, after which the performance gains are negative. Am I right?
My personal experience shows that even one access per day is too low. Cloudflare will drop your file from the cache and ignore your TTL. Is there a way to guarantee a cache hit before the TTL? I’m willing to pay for such a feature, if it exists!
