I am facing issues with APO and have raised a ticket, it is almost 12 days now and no response (I am on Pro plan),
I have a couple of questions, may be someone here can help me understand:
- As per official cloudflare support article
DYNAMIC The resource was not cached by default and your current Cloudflare caching configuration doesn’t instruct Cloudflare to cache the resource. Instead, the resource was requested from the origin web server. Use Page Rules to implement custom caching options
Why using APO, the first few visits are marked cf-cache-status as DYNAMIC? As it would mean those pages are never meant to be served from Cloudflare? And after few visits I see a HIT. ideally it should say MISS/EXPIRED or something more relevant but not DYNAMIC as it is confusing
After using APO, in the cloudflare cache analytics I could see ~400k requests marked as EMPTY (None), what are these? I can’t find any documentation for such request?
Is it only me or the cache HIT ratio is very poor? I mean I open the same page 3 times and the 4th time I get HIT (first 3 are DYNAMIC), then I close the browser and re-open the browser and again first few visits are DYNAMIC?
With APO enabled my google analytics is showing that all the traffic is coming from US but in real it is NOT as when I disable APO the the traffic stats are proper in google analytics.
In other threads it is told that I should delete all the Page Rules, but WHY all the page rules? It makes sense to delete the cache everything page rule but why should I delete other page rules? Is there a conflict of using APO with page rules?
PS: I have disabled APO and switched back to page rules.
