how is the cdn detected - wolfie_cr - 01-20-2015 03:57 AM


Thanks all in advance, is there anyway to tell how is a cdn 'detected' ?

We are using one but the webpage insists its not.

Do you have a link to the test results and who are you using for a CDN? The CDN detection works by looking at the CNAME alias' and response headers but it only works for CDN's that have been configured and if you are using one that hasn't been added yet it won't be detected.

I do require that the CDN actually be distributed and for the purpose of being close to the users and reducing latency. Static file servers from a single location don't qualify.
