CDN Request Pipelining

March 16, 2014

Not all Content Delivery Networks (CDN) request pipeline (also known as Pre Caching System).

Request pipelining is a technique to reduce the number of origin hits for simultaneous requests. If there are three simultaneous requests for a non cached item then one server will make the request to the origin and the other two servers will wait until the server making its request has completed and then return the cached content.

The impact of having no request pipelining depends on the nature of what your origin is serving. If origin hits are particularly heavy CPU/IO wise and/or you have flash traffic (large amount in very short window) then you will definitely want your CDN to request pipeline.

Not all CDN providers cache on first request

March 16, 2014

It’s not something CDN (Content Delivery Network) providers broadcast but not all CDNs cache an object on first request. Their rationale being they don’t want to fill their cache with items that are not frequently requested.

The impact of don’t cache on first request really depends on the nature of what your origin is serving. If origin hits are particularly heavy CPU/IO wise and/or you have flash traffic (large amount in very short window) then you will definitely want your CDN to cache on first request.

The good news is many CDNs can turn this off so first requests are cached.
