CDN test #3
Post by iconPost by zezo | 2020-11-28 | 12:56:26

Ok, not really CDN

Maybe a CDN is not a very good idea. CDN can be nightmare to support.

Decided to try a little virtual server in Strasbourg instead. Idea is to use it to cache the images, but will serve the site too with the current config.

Please try opening and tell me how it works for you. In theory it should even be a bit more responsive for users in France and Germany than the usual site.

Hello, it works and faster for me in Est of France (not that far from Strasbourg but I don't know if it makes a difference).

Works great. W10+Chrome.

Works great with no noticeable difference in Canada. However, at times I have experienced some DNS resolving delays on the regular site, so having an alternate could be beneficial.

I switched the image serving to the new front-end now.

There was initial glitch when every browser had to reload all the data anew. Looks fine now.

It works.
I'd say it's faster

faster for me Yvelines France

It won't be much faster because the main delay comes from the routing calculation itself.

But it's 30 milliseconds closer to the world and the VPS sits at gigabit physical port, so the load time for the winds and map should be better indeed.

Hi Cvetan,

Response time is fine (actually, I already though it was acceptable from the original site ^^).

BTW, if you want to translate some part of your fr subdomain in french, just tell me (you have my email) :)

Thanks. It's not intended to be used as main site. Just kind of mini-cdn serving the static images.

Living in Strasbourg, can you please keep that one? :D

About half of traffic comes from there now. Winds and chart.

The rest is dynamically generated (mostly the track/isochrone images)
