CDN caching accelerates the loading times of assets as it allows to host them as close as possible to your end users. By using CDN caching, your ensure maximum performance of your website. You can define the
s-maxage attributes in the Cache-Control HTTP Header of assets delivered by Filerobot to control the caching behavior.
When this cache expired, the asset will be requested from the origin and the new assets delivered to the client.
We recommend using Invalidation if you need to refresh your assets as it will not impact your CDN cache-hit ratio.
The caching period settings can be customized in the Filerobot DAM Console settings:
||The time in seconds that the asset is allowed to be re-used.
||This directive applies only to the caching in CDN. To maximise performance,
we recommend you set a high value here and invalidate assets when needed.
You can define the caching interval of a specific asset by setting the ci_cache=X URL parameter of the asset where X is the interval in seconds.
This will override the
s-maxage attributes only for this asset.
If you need to use a very small caching interval for a specific image (for example, snapshots from a live webcam or a specific chart with dynamically changing contents), you need to change the Automatic origin image refresh setting in your DAM Console. This tells our resizing servers to update all origin images after this interval has expired.
Please note that the Automatic origin image refresh value affects all URLs using your token. This will not change your CDN cache but after this interval expires, the origin image will be fetched by our resizing servers from your storage on every new operation or filter.
