Gatsby Images Loads Slow and Gatsby Link Routes Slow

Hi Team,

The initial load of the images is slow and the routing of pages is slow during initial load.
Is this related to free tier account or gatsby related or netlify related?

Thanks and Regards,


Writing a detailed post will help us determine the issue and fix it quicker, generally we need:

  • Your Netlify Domain (

  • Deploy logs (Posted in thread or linked to)

  • Git Repo if you have one


I think it’s a Gatsby issue. It’s requesting your image files much later:

The images start loading after 5 seconds! Till then it’s just prefetching all the page data JSON files and some other icons, here and there.

However, the TTFB is also taking long, so I’m not sure if Netlify is also the cause.
