Cloudflare How much of your bandwidth/requests are served by Cloudflare?

    I activated Cloudflare Pro about a week ago on my site. I am using both their Mirage and Polish image services, lossy image compression, serving compressed JS and CSS, and serving .webp images to great effect; I did some before/after comparisons that I hope to post later.

    Anyways, I thought it might be interesting to share analytics data to see how cache rates and bandwidth usage compare with other Centminmod/Cloudflare users.

    I'll get things started. Here's my first week on Cloudflare:

    I'm surprised more of my bandwidth isn't getting cached. I have aggressive Page Rules in place to cache all of my XF Image Proxy images and XF attachments, but when I inspect the headers it looks like there are still quite a few misses...

    Looking forward to see what these graphs look like for the rest of you. :)

    Mines pretty low even with page rules ~20-25% cached. Not sure if that is because I only have some of my 100+ subdomains with orange cloud enabled since I have different subdomains on different servers.

    ok checked, last month 21% cached heh but 35% bandwidth saved

    Very interesting, @gabel.

    Looks like you've got a lot of room for optimization there! What kind of site is that? XenForo/WordPress?

    @gabel Good caching rate... I want to get my cache rate higher. :(

    What type of site? WordPress/Xenforo?

    @eva2000 yup cloudflare does help but all the credit goes to centmin. After some optimization on the script even without cloudflare it was running like a dream at over 1.25 millions page views per day (CF is great especially since it helped cutting cdn costs :D)

    Oh yes, I forgot you were the same user I asked earlier. :ROFLMAO:

    The numbers that adult sites can bring in are really impressive.
