RESEARCH 》 How to check a website using CDN ?

If you are new to CDN Technology, you can read the Introduction of CDN (Content Delivery Networks or Content Distribution Networks) over HERE.

Using a CDN for a website is a always suggested based on the popularity of your website. But do you know how to check if a website is using a CDN ?

Here is how you can check quite easily.

Lets take for example Facebook. Open the Facebook website in your browser.
1-research-how-to-check-a-website-using-cdn-facebook

Do right-click and select the “View Page Source” option in the menu:
2-research-how-to-check-a-website-using-cdn-facebook-view-page-source

Now search for keywords such as “cdn”, “edge”, etc. You can find the website resources (such as scripts/images/etc) should be pointing to alternative links as shown below:
3-research-how-to-check-a-website-using-cdn-facebook-page-source

In this case Facebook contains the resources with URLs pointing to CDN hosted locations. As you can see it has the location “m-static.ak.fbcdn.net”. This stands for: Static Akamai Facebook CDN. So this is a clue that Facebook is majorly hosted on Akamai CDN.

But one should also understand since Facebook is so massive, Facebook may/will contain its own CDN (or cloud sort of) infrastructure. But if this goes beyond a massive scale, certainly they can get outside world CDN subscriptions as in this case they got via Akamai.

Let us see another example such as the website ComputerWorld online magazine.
4-research-how-to-check-a-website-using-cdn-computerworld-page-source

In this case ComputerWorld is using the Edgesuite.net. Edgesuite.net is run by Akamai Technologies more specific for AD content. So once again we can see how a website uses a CDN Service.

In the case of Linkedin, it uses the Limelight CDN service/vendor. You can see the resource URLs containing static.licdn.com.

Optimization of network data (WAN Optimization) at various levels ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
WAN Network data can be optimized at various levels depending upon the network applications, protocols, topology and use-cases. So the amount of data you can optimize will depend on the strategy you choose to optimize. Such as: Network Packet level optimization, Session level optimization, File level optimization, etc.

TOFFEE-DataCenter Live Demo with Clash of Clans game data - 30-Aug-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Today I have done a test setup so that I can able to connect my Android Samsung Tab via TOFFEE DataCenter. Below is my complete test topology of my setup. For demo (and research/development) context I configured TOFFEE DataCenter in engineering debug mode. So that I do not need two devices for this purpose.

Building my own CDN - Finally Completed - Update: 17-Dec-2017 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Today I finally completed building my own private CDN. As I discussed so far in my earlier topics (Building my own CDN), I want to custom build the same step-by-step from scratch. And I don't want to for now use/buy third-party CDN subscriptions from Akamai, CloudFlare, Limelight, etc as I discussed earlier.

A study on Deep Space Networks (DSN) ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
When you are dealing Deep Space Networks (DSN) one among the most challenging parts is the Interplanetary distances and communicating data across such vast distances. This is where we are not dealing with common Internet type traffic such as HTTP/FTP/VoIP/etc but it is completely different when it comes to DSN so far. So optimizing data in DSN becomes mandatory. For example if you think one of the Mars Rovers, they have used LZO lossless compression.



Detect and Monitor Failing Harddrive in Linux - My Seagate 500GB HDD Died ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
My 500GB Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM hard-drive suddenly started making mild clicking noise. I found this happening since morning. I was suspicious that something wrong in this drive and when I opened the Linux Disks app, I can find the cause of this issue. The disk is increasingly getting read errors. Besides I can see various other parameters such as Power-On Hours, Temperature, Head flying hours, etc.

Building my own CDN - choosing a web-hosting to deploy my CDN - Update: 28-July-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
The TOFFEE Project website is hosted on Inmotion Hosting. And so I am looking for alternate hosting provider to build my first CDN node. My plan is to make multiple sub-domains of my website such as cdn1.the-toffee-project.org, cdn2.the-toffee-project.org and point each of this corresponding subdomain(s) to various alternative web hosting servers geographically spread across the world. Sometimes choosing the same vendor for multiple CDN nodes may result multiple servers existing in the data-center. And this becomes an issue if there is some catastrophic network disaster.

My Lab Battery Purchase and Service logs for Research ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Here is a complete log of my lab battery purchase, service record which I maintain in Google drive. These I use for my home (or my family generic use) as well as a part of my home lab. I maintain a detailed log this way to monitor the failure rate of these batteries. This will allow me to select a specific brand/model which has higher success rate and to monitor any premature failure/expiry. The service log helps me to monitor and schedule the next service routine so that I can maintain these batteries in tip-top condition.
