I am spiking Cloudflare Images at the moment and, on the whole, I am really pleased with it. However, I am noticing a lot of inconsistency in the response time from
imagesdelivery.net and wondered:
- Is it just me, or are others experiencing this?
- How do I remedy this? It is most likely that I’m doing something wrong
Often it serves small-ish image files (8KB and 14KB files) in ~400ms, compared with larger files (fonts, for example) coming from the Edge via Cloudflare Pages which are downloaded in around 50ms.
I then occasionally get randomly slower requests - not necessarily for the larger image varients:
Again, similar here:
And, even slower:
As you can see, this image below is barely even 4KB and it’s taking 569ms to load:
I’ve looked through the forums and not found a solution, and I’ve not really found anyone writing here with similar issues. The closest I could find to a similar thread was this one (which I note was closed with no real solution/input).
I assumed Cloudflare Images would be the best choice especially given how impressive Cloudflare usually is, but I’m wondering about exploring other providers now (though I would prefer to be told I’m doing something wrong, see better performance, and stay with this service).
Just for clarity: None of my images are signed urls, and I’m aware that one can use custom domains, which I have not done.
Hoping someone here can guide me. Thanks in advance.
