TTFB is very long using Cloudflare

Hi everyone!

The issue I run into is that when I upload files I chunk them into smaller pieces. After each chunk a new request gets sent. These requests have a long TTFB waiting time as you can see here:


It takes 1.2 mins to upload 50mb and then 30 seconds to respond from Cloudflare to my server in order to start the next 50mb chunk.

Is there a way I can disable Cloudflare for only and not for ?

I would appreciate any help!

@Woet Thanks for that post but it doesn’t affect my case, because I am uploading data which seems to be processed on Cloudflare’s end. It is not meaningless as they say, when it adds an extra 7 minutes of waiting when the user is uploading a 300mb file. Other than that I do agree with them if it does not hurt your SEO.

Thanks for the response! I figured it would only be available through subdomains. I wish that would be a possibility on my end to set up a sub domain. :-( Seems like I just need to do some better caching on my end. Shouldn’t be too hard and on top of it all the popular libraries are available as CDNs anyways.
