FBT need to increase - yahya - 12-29-2019 04:16 PM

Hi Seniors,
I hope you doing well, I having the issue of FBT which is 1.265 and it should be less than as recommend. I having dedicated server and running Apache2 with CDN. I try to figure out the issue but not understanding where the issues is.

If I try to test the static HTML file then the same FBT result found.
If I try to test with a real application then also the same issue is found.


Everything is fine except FBT time. Could you please help me to overcome this issue.

Thanks in advance.

Your website is behind Cloudflare. The initial connection and handshake is quick to Cloudflare's edge server but it seems to be taking a long time from CF to the origin server, possibly from a long SSL handshake + latency. I would try testing the site with Cloudflare's proxy/CDN disabled.

Hi, I have the same problem . I have been trying to reduce DNS lookup and signed up with Cloudflare but now I have got long time to first byte (0.55 sec) instead. Now I have the same time approx. 1.2 sec. (before signup with Cloudflare and now). Does anyone know solution how to reduce time for handshaking between CF and original server?
Thanks in advance!
