I have a website with all of the pages served from nginx’s http cache and rarely invalidated or expired.
The average total page download size is around 2 MB But despite being a static site with no funny logic my server response is around a second
I recorded nginx’s
$request_time and it comes to around 400 milliseconds from the server
and each file at 20-30 KB average
400 millisecond seems to be absurd.
I am behind Cloudflare and
sendfile on; tcp_nopush off; tcp_nodelay on; keepalive_timeout 300s; keepalive_requests 10000;
What should I be doing to bring down the response time to the 150-millisecond range?
Edit: First part of my tunning.
Realized I didn’t have SSL OSCP on. Tweaked code to
# https://github.com/autopilotpattern/wordpress/issues/19 ssl_session_cache shared:SSL:50m; ssl_session_timeout 1d; ssl_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/site.com/fullchain.pem; ssl_certificate_key /etc/letsencrypt/live/site.com/privkey.pem; ssl_trusted_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/site.com/chain.pem; ssl on; ssl_protocols TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2; ssl_ciphers 'EECDH+AESGCM:EDH+AESGCM:AES256+EECDH:AES256+EDH'; ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on; ssl_stapling on; ssl_stapling_verify on;
I’ll report back on improvement.
