Hi, I’ve tried 3 different setups for my client and origin server.
Origin: US East datacenter
Client: Munich, Germany datacenter
Direct connection without Cloudflare Tunnel - latency is 91ms
Access the origin via Cloudflare Tunnel (Argo disabled) - latency is 350ms (extra 259ms!)
Access the origin via Cloudflare Tunnel (Argo enabled) - latency is 331ms (only 5.4% improvement)
Why does Cloudflare claim in their website Argo improve performance by average of 30%?
