Cache prefetching is a technique used by computer processors to boost execution performance by fetching instructions or data from their original storage in slower memory to a faster local memory before it is actually needed. Prefetching allows new HTTP pull content to be pre-populated at MerlinCDN distribution Zones.
To manage cache prefetching; follow the steps outlined below:
Log in to MerlinCDN Management panel.
In the left navigation sidebar click Distributions. Select your distribution you want to manage cache prefetching.
- Click on Cache Prefetching tab.
- Click on Create Cache Prefetching.
You can configure MerlinCDN to prefetch a file by specifying headers and path.
