Why there are so many bypass html requests?

Several days ago, I start using Cloudflare Plugin for WordPress and enable the APO for my website https://www.datanumen.com/ and Data Recovery Blog - Discuss every aspect of data recovery . Now I notice that there are a lot of ByPass HTML requests(about 114.52k in the past 24 hours), see the attached image.

Although I have setup some rules to bypass the cache for the administrator section of my WordPress sites, the visits to the administrator section is very limited. It is not possible with such a large volume(114.52k)

So, why so many HTML requests are bypassed?

Below is the image

If there’s a cookie in the request or response, I believe that would account for a BYPASS. And if I have my browser send a no-cache header, that will also trigger a BYPASS. Some crawlers and page tests do this.

And, holy cow, your site is crazy fast. It loads in a half-second for me.


You can just filter based on Bypass and see the URLs right?

Thank you very much. I just filter based on Cache type as “ByPass” and see the following result:

where I notice the path “/outlook-repair/” is bypassed, which is not desired. And I don’t know why it is bypassed.

I try to visit it in Chrome DevTools, and see the following result:

so it seems that “/outlook-repair/” is cached. Why there are so many requests on it are bypassed?

This URL loads long on my FireFox, while Chrome is faster.

What I use Developer tools with “Disable cache” option being enabled, I get this:

cache-control: max-age=0
cf-apo-via: origin, no-cache
cf-cache-status: BYPASS

Otherwise, I get:

cache-control: max-age=14400
cf-apo-via: tcache
cf-cache-status: HIT

If you disable cache by purpose, then it will be ByPass, but there should not be so many bypass as most of the users will not disable the cache when visiting website.
