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