Hi

Currently right now it is not possible, but we have put your feedback forward.

No reply, so i guess it is not possible.

I stopped testing CDN, unfortunately in current form it is not usable.

It is hosted from dedicated server i am renting with OVH. The logs that i have are not going to be useful as CDN hits my server only when data requested is not in cache.

Another problem is that if someone see let say a file that is 10mb large, can easily make the CDN run out of bandwidth by downloading this file x times. That's only 100k requests and most hosts have incoming traffic for free, so it won't cost potential attacker a penny.

There is no way to block such attack - i can't see any option in the panel.

Otherwise CDN is not going to be useful as i don't wan't to pay for the traffic someone steals.
