I’ve set up cloudflare for my domain and immediately noticed the slow initial loading time presumably because static content is served from cloudflare’s servers. If I enable development mode bypassing cache the website loads 4 times faster (12.7s vs 3.58s). Is this some sort of limitation for free accounts? At this point I see no reason to use the cache as it’s only annoying, >12s (often closer to 20) load time is more than enough to presume the website is down and leave it altogether.
That’s a ton of JS files that aren’t being cached. Any resource that’s not cached by Cloudflare takes an additional hop for Cloudflare to get it from your server. The cache-control header says “public” but has no expiration set. It seems to me that’s why they’re not being cached. If you can add a max-age to that header, it should speed things up considerably.
You were right, thanks, I’ve added
Cache-Control: public, max-age=691200, s-maxage=691200
to my load balancer and purged cache in cloudflare, it now loads around 3 seconds with cache enabled
