Quick Retry

Quick Retry detects slow forward throughput while fetching a delivery object and attempts a different forward connection path to avoid congestion.

How it works

Once you enable Quick Retry, the target forward throughput is set based on the product in use:

  • Adaptive Media Delivery and Download Delivery. 5 Mbps.
  • Object Delivery. 2 Mbps.

When the transfer rate drops below this rate during a connection attempt, quick retry is enabled and a different forward connection path is used.

You can change this value with the help of your ​Akamai​ account representative, who can add the Quick Retry Override behavior to your property.

See the relevant product's user documentation for complete details on how to use this behavior:
