mercutio: 

for dynamic content you don't have to set - content shouldn't be cached without caching headers.  the reason static content gets cached is because a lot of caches cache based upon the last modified time.



IMO in practice you pretty much need to set them due to the many idiosyncratic behaviours of the various caching proxies

Has anyone noticed if this is fixed yet? I keep forgetting to check when I'm at home.

With the new Amazon Sydney data centre coming online soon it'd be good to have a lower latency connection to Australia.

This wasn't the case until three weeks or so ago (when I started this topic), as back then access to the CloudFlare SYD POP was as fast as the Amazon access is now.

So TC has made Amazon (Cloudfront) access fast, but kept Cloudflare access slow. Gee thanks TC.

Surely there's something they can do though. If it's a problem with their upstream provider don't they have influence?

I may have to switch to a a different CDN. Cloudfront would only cost me about $1/month, they trouble is integration with Wordpress or how to set it up. There's probably a plugin for that though.

I'd imagine so, but it seems we hit a wall here.

I have contact CloudFlare to see if they can do anything on their side.

Between Cloudflare and Telstra you'd think they have the network knowledge, people, and connections to get it fixed up... the question is is it significant enough for them to bother with.

I wouldn't hold your breath on that one. A small edge location to cache static content shouldn't be too difficult, but a full amazon data centre probably isn't worth their while.

So I assume this map is accurate, and reflects why there is an issue?

Yes Peter, seems TCL has dropped the cogentco.com capacity they were using.


Interestingly I note that VF us Vocus as their upstream, so I wonder if we'll see a consolidation and change shortly?

This is via DTS, but they join Vocus as well and pick up AL from Sydney.

The obvious question to ask is has TCL been chopping and changing providers around so much that the upstreams have got a bit sick of it and are just picking up BGP announcements from where ever?

It looks to me like TGlobal has got some miss routing in there...

|                  p10026.sgw.equinix.com -    0 |    5 |    5 |  153 |  154 |  155 |  155 |


Something in Sydney thinks it should pick up the equinix anouncements from Perth, then it just goes pear shape from there.

| ge-0-2-0-1.xcore1.acld.telstraclear.net -   50 |    2 |    1 |   26 |   26 |   26 |   26 |

|i-0-1-4-1.sydo-core02.bx.telstraglobal.net -    0 |    5 |    5 |   49 |   53 |   66 |   50 |

But TelstraGlobal is the direct upstream from TCL, so that's some shocking customer service there from both TG and TCL.  They're not even talking to each other to sort it out are they? 

MF's response indicates "not local, can't help".

But is this being over looked by TG because they don't expect to stay the TCL upstream for long enough to make fixing worth while?

But tell me what's going on between T and TG? T.au pick up CF from Asianetcom in Sydney.

That suggests volumes to me, but we all know I wear a TFH, so who really knows what's going on.

freitasm: My hope is that one day Cloudflare or Amazon will have a New Zealand POP. Because we can't rely on ISPs' international connectivity - they really don't give a damn to how fast things are.


We care! - we have people 24/7/365 monitoring this sort of stuff.

One thing to remember about the ISP Map is that it does not show up many direct peering sessions with CDN's etc - its only major transit routes, so for example it does not show peering's with the linkes of Google/Akamai/AWS - and importantly the IX's like Equnix.
