CommunityTip - Best Practices for Using Argo

Why Argo?
The public Internet does not account for network congestion, leading to slow load times and a degraded experience for visitors to your site. The Cloudflare network routes over 10 trillion global requests per month, this gives Argo Smart Routing a unique vantage point to detect real-time congestion and route web traffic to the fastest and most reliable network paths.

Argo Smart Routing Benefits
With Argo Smart Routing, you’ll see:

  • Faster Loading Times
    Argo delivers web traffic over the fastest links available resulting in noticeably faster web assets and improved end-user experience. On average, web assets perform 30% faster with Argo Smart Routing.
  • Increased Reliability
    Argo’s live view of network conditions enables it to route around congestion and leverage the most reliable links to deliver increased uptime.
  • Integrated Security
    All Argo traffic is encrypted end-to-end across the Cloudflare network, protecting web traffic from bad actors.
  • Reduced Costs
    Argo minimizes content requests to the origin server, reducing latency, server load, and bandwidth usage.
