Is it possible to perform an Fire and Forget request using Akamai. Basically, what I would like is a particular request to make it to my origin server however, still serve my static image content from the CDN?
The following should work: Set prefresh (not prefetch, prefresh) behavior to 0%, from the default 90%. Your request will still be served from cache (if TTL still active) yet asynchronously will be forwarded to origin. Let me know how it goes
Hi Kristopher Kleva,
surely this is possible - if I understand you correctly:
Does that help and answer your question?
Kristopher Kleva, did this response help?
Your requirement sounds like an analytics call. You'd like a synchronous request where Akamai delivers an image to browser and an async call to origin that you can use to collect some data. Is this understanding correct?
Yes, this is correct. The request is a an analytics request.
Are you familiar with Akamai's Cloud Monitor? You can find the description by clicking Cloud Monitor | Akamai.
Is that what you are looking for?
