I’ve got a simple grocery shopping website and I setup Cloudflare from the start expecting it would reduce the bandwidth hit.
It’s still a growing site and i dont have much history to compare to but looking at it now, halfway thru the month and i’ve already hit 77GB bandwidth from my package/plan of 10GB only!
- I checked Cloudflare and yes it’s setup right… CF claims to have saved me X bandwidth
- 99% of stuff on the server are just images (product images) and these are static for sure.
- 99.99% of users are local in my City only.
consumption shows that half of the BW hits are the static images!
These again are static and should’ve been cached on CF already right? and that all other users in the same region/location/city should be accessing cached images from CF right? and not from my server directly? hence the geographical “content distribution” where users from same areas will be served cached data from closest server of CF, right?
Then why am I still getting so BW hits?
