Lags on loading

#1

Hello,
i’have checked, during last two months, that with my free cloudflare’s account, my site becames very slow (3, 4 even 10 seconds lag) when there are a lot of simultaneous users (about 200 users checkd via google analytics live performance).

If i pause the cloudflare cache system everything (development mode on) turn to be very much faster.

So, someone knows if it’s a limit or something like that beacuse of free account or it’s a “feature” of cloudflare system and it will still there even if i upgrade to payment account?

Thanks a lot.

Cloudflare’s cache should not have any effect on that, respectively actually speed up requests not slow them down.

I’d highly suspect your server is not properly configured for such a number of concurrent requests, but if you say there is no such problem when you disable the cache, I can only take it at face value. My assumption would be there was something not right in how it was measured but it would take a lot more details and debugging.

In short, you should be fine with the free account and I would take a thorough look at that server configuration.

Thanks for reply Sandro,
but it’s long time we are debugging with a lot of tools (new relic and similar…) nothing strange server side …the only thing that makes difference it’s cloudflare development mode switched off.

So i’was looking for a confirm about a free account limit before to upgrade it.

PS: if development mode it switched off… it will be back to on, automatically after a couple of hours. There is a way to keep it off?

No, thats the very idea of development mode. You could only configure a page rule which disables caching.

But again, I strongly doubt caching is the reason.
