Review rule order

If your Cloudlet has rules with hostname, path, and protocol matches, review the rule order. If you group rules with these match types in this order, you may see performance improvements:

  1. Protocol (HTTP/HTTPS)
  2. Hostname
  3. Path

    Below are some examples of ordering rules with this match types.

Single match regrouping example: protocol

When reorganizing rules with protocol matches, group rules together by the type of protocol, either HTTP or HTTPS. Here's an example:

Original Order Optimized Order
  1. http://url.com/a
  2. https://url.com/a
  3. http://url.com/b
  4. https://url.com/b
  5. http://url.com/c
  6. https://url.com/c
  1. http://url.com/a
  2. http://url.com/b
  3. http://url.com/c
  4. https://url.com/a
  5. https://url.com/b
  6. https://url.com/c

Multiple match regrouping example

Here's an example of how to reorder a list of rules that contain protocol, hostname, and path matches:

Original Order Optimized Order
  1. http://prod.url.com/b
  2. https://prod.url.com/b
  3. http://prod.url.com/a
  4. https://prod.url.com/a
  5. http://beta.url.com/b
  6. https://beta.url.com/b
  7. http://beta.url.com/a
  8. https://beta.url.com/a
  1. http://beta.url.com/a
  2. http://beta.url.com/b
  3. http://prod.url.com/a
  4. http://prod.url.com/b
  5. https://beta.url.com/a
  6. https://beta.url.com/b
  7. https://prod.url.com/a
