As the title suggests; for the last few days I’ve noticed all of my site requests have the response header of “Cf-Railgun: direct”, meaning the requests haven’t tried to use Railgun at all.
Now, I don’t know anything about the inner working of Railgun, it was working (after a fashion*) after I set it up, but it now just seems to be bypassing the Dreamhost Railgun daemon entirely. Possibly there’s more traffic than the Dreamhost daemon was expected to receive? I dunno, just curious what other people’s observation have been.
*I’ve already reported an issue to CloudFlare themselves, though I dunno how long it would likely take to fix, but personally I’ve been finding any improvement from Railgun to be, well practically non-existant. Even loading exactly the same URL in two different browsers both report a compression ration of around 100% (no reduction in size), they don’t see a change until you refresh the page.
That could be an issue with my headers maybe, but I was under the impression that Railgun wouldn’t care if pages are private or whatever, since it’s just extracting common elements in order to provide improved compression.
Anyway, please post any thoughts on how it’s been working for you! I’m interested to see if other people’s experiences have differed much.
