Identify large files that are candidates for delivery optimization

You can use the information on the File size tab to look at large and frequently accessed files. You can then decide whether these files should be compressed or have their delivery method optimized.


One of your content authors asks whether their new image-heavy content strategy is causing performance issues on the main website.


To resolve this scenario:

  1. Click the domain on which your users report issues.

  2. Click File size.

  3. Look at the file size and overall bandwidth consumed.

    In this scenario, the screenshot uploaded directly into the feed/images/ directory is notably larger than the delivery-optimized file served from the cdn-cgi/images location. Also, consider that the delivery-optimized file is accessed far less than the new screenshot uploaded.

  4. Decide whether to take actions such as compressing the file or hosting the file on another content delivery network (CDN) if it is particularly large (such as a short video or large PDF document).

  5. Discuss with your content authors the advantages of using a CDN when managing images on popular pages on your website.

Follow up actions

If you choose to compress the file, check the report every week to make sure the file drops down the large file list.
