I was testing my rest api deployed to app platform and noticed that after spamming requests quickly one after another my response times increased i.e. 200ms, 400ms, 2s, 3s and stayed at 3s afterwards. After waiting for few seconds and making another request it was back to 200ms

Looking at my server insights, I don’t see any stress on resources at all so I am assuming this delay is applied by cloudflare?

If so, is there any documentation or reference about this and perhaps any other cloudflare related behaviour users should be aware of?
