Quick Retry and OD

Quick retry detects slow forward throughput while fetching a streaming media object and attempts a different forward connection path to try to avoid congestion.

This behavior is automatically included in the Default Rule in a new OD property. It's recommended, but it's not required like the other behaviors in the Default Rule. You can remove it if desired.

It's automatically enabled and requires no additional configuration, but it can be customized with the help of your Akamai account representative. There are also caveats and known issues associated with its use. For complete details, see Add Quick Retry.
