Status Code Cache TTL

Function Introduction

When EdgeOne retrieves resources from the origin, if the origin successfully responds with the resources, EdgeOne will respond to the client request and cache it in EdgeOne for direct response next time. If the origin responds with an exception status code such as 4xx or 5xx, EdgeOne cannot obtain the resources, and the next request will still trigger a follow origin, which may put significant pressure on the origin. By configuring the status code cache TTL, EdgeOne can directly respond with the exception status code within the cache time, instead of triggering a follow origin for all requests, which can mitigate the pressure on the origin and improve the response speed.
Currently, the following status codes can be configured:
4xx: 400, 401, 403, 404, 405, 407, 414.
5xx: 500, 501, 502, 503, 504, 509, 514.
Note:
EdgeOne caches the 404 status code by default for 10 seconds.
