Long Time To First Byte on Images

On my test, having some long time to first byte on things like images and css. The images and css are cached with cloudflare, and seems like every test has a few, but they are different on each test.


They really seem to slow down the overall loading.

What I’m I missing that I need to look at to fix? Any ideas?



I’d reach out to Cloudflare support and have them take a look. Looking at the headers it looks like you are allowing them to cache the images and they are being served from Cloudflare’s cache so something else is going on.

I ran a test from EC2 to make sure it’s not the Dulles node specifically: http://www.webpagetest.org/result/130730_G0_628377019c13b50999932c40fcb7c010/

The west coast looks better though there are still some slightly longer times: http://www.webpagetest.org/result/130730_QQ_f98245d09acaeaa1f7d82a72f184596b/

My guess is that there are having problems with their Ashburn POP.
