I’m looking for the elusive 100 / 100 performance score on web.dev, and when testing my current project, I’m noticing that the load times vary greatly. After an initial support ticket, it appears that data for sites are stored in a main data center, and served to the edge upon request. Here is the issue, when the site is loaded from Edge Cache, it’s blazing fast, but when the current edge server doesn’t have cache, it loads much slower.
With this said, is there a way for me to tell edge instances of Netlify to create a cache entry for my site? Ideally via CLI, an API so that upon each new build, I can generate the edge cache to have the site perform correctly.
Below is the site in question when it hits a node that has cache, and one when it doesn’t.
