HTTPS gzip test and AWS CDN - hawleyjr - 02-26-2011 05:02 AM

I apologize if this is a duplicate. I looked through other threads and wasn't able to find anything similar.

When I submit a URL that is using HTTPS

All GZIP test fail even though there are styles,js and HTML with gzip compression.

Also, if there is a subdomain for AWS Ex: https://someclient.s3.amazonaws.com this does not show up as a CDN

Here is a result where both are shown:

Yes, sorry - IE munges the http headers when it's doing HTTPS (strips out the content encoding header) so I don't have visibility into gzip. It shouldn't fail though, they should get flagged as N/A.

The CDN issue on the other hand is actually correct. S3 isn't a CDN - you data is in a specific region. If you use cloudfront then it will show up as a CDN :-)

Thanks,
