    Hi there,
    When we use Ad Inserter on a very busy site (the site in question gets around 3 to 5 million page views a month), it causes the page to have a massive number of requests to third party servers. It can escalate to over 500 or more requests, slowing the page down to 50+ seconds load time.

    It also generates very large request URLs. For example,

    
    https://xxxxxxxxx/dbm/ad?dbm_c=AKAmf-B5TbruthLB6NncskxrqTLEo4gEzSabFssTusXBogS5J5r7j8FGug_SfOwhnvd_XsebvWSz&dbm_d=AKAmf-B19UtHWMk_nn368K7D0Ntp-8-cmYE16w9AkTrNw4ksSBvGSUF2sMrkpXCe5h1AFHRwhFs6ykIphoTDJ0Kv-_rL_5moPas14F-dKUT0uSagHBvjKYzkoqgeWKjCjssk2ZI3PvqmmWscTZXRzk6C3doQhcwzbHxs-zhDRsGI5KX-1YCSrLw6UsOybVxaXBKOj4unhn6EaKEofDck--xAKRKjCGdXIUt7JEbNtC4NTHp8QdIqR_dLxUAXVLtq-qB2oN-v9rK-buCDkvCkfDZMb7I-aNy7VID-jU5eplUTlHL8v5i-NMA-zz75lK1F_Av6bGjyVWHg75cFVnHq4hikEP8hUrrFrA3F18eeHFKUM9XLlj5Vde29NwbY-zd8DV_N9GnRwX2vAX640RT_Bj9yvKIUbcwEJyh-lsXmc9TWaUR_DZf1KZhNmZs8vNeI9fRA8naa207UDt0XbSMjzTU8skgoAjA6YDodCPYafAdbID4uaMCjuqJzxHBuZNAnyCuN8nRsdBQhvnNLYvwVMGQIHt3uZpcSUaRTGrV4iHt_Fj90kVmtiF0BlpKPeVzV2CFXgcz5dBZY_Y624rXllxGcCXTytGyyVehYcs1G2Rq_Se9BNdaeLUluA0GeUIQc9Cfu3WktswdsB55iwT6bqatEd6kgDNMFg1ul95bU39nIF1JQShPw_apKKO4_iPKhtOxjx8372J8gUu4DNAuBX8uqrbyd0Z4X6lT8lnXEuFy7gQ2y0ST9bpWUTePSTHDl6JUQTGYyy6tJLabm8Qcwg4R6KHrxCPG7sgJFDvM-dzMbONkqshc6MWTPmwLRN-cwxBIWhVx69IhCMXdXnnjI_KQZC5C3pjjoeejLEwFAaIlbKW9A90iWhdNeaiWGq4ktlkoZb-YGp0maDadF5sNUrVJXtMWh99m70a-7qwk6HTG-9d3zZiNWqbPNpmEiyMYxqcm3scRpDkenEA83ETSLmRWR9r3Z9BAGohikFH78918hlcEaf4QhC8z0Tko_5mOmkZZ7xdEaPbaOmjiPYxMtrBE3Abe33uOB9aouEFNoAptCf9bw5D7sg633CzpqKqqlCN4fd7nssnnqJ65sq3dQ8O2nbhncwQqdcGLx_VXH9rBOOrpxUY5kWEwtEL9QphRg-k_FJnmFo-vX_NMHLrw6vDbYx7rlelk8nGBtkeejyTw4yAn5r-WJ3gh9K2pUD2KqE6OsSOpbBE7KO-j3Wm5Ho_TR8_nudvAWBh8-IXrSPHxZNHJVFJCer62dkn7OtLFIJP7fs9o7-5rxYs87fW_eNr12fuKxom8QT0GsQ0IlgD0asXmpRcyHaw0PWKHA0i4beQcl4HWcUGBKCZ71riimIZBDbgmba8qrnrzCE3jB9AayAF0843TvzWaJyax0ZGSNxMzdXIBEYRBPgDofaEaTPBitkxCO6K6hSa39Mx_s83vLxsG5au9AlTldZfkRGteH1eXv__NgSUgSmbpld7rGCUaX5X2uX-L88uSPIpO33juHcQbQqhTH4KmIoC8duRD1vX1AGgLF3p-IWbRGvPHU3F-q4erHWdzktkTf5qnqaKUI_zvyBOKBgcPkaeB4GYM0AYkTlCl_AwyExADV3xmsMjKk6WyRW3BpOYHQ_a1cTczQuiYNIZzqYI_XjVLgptvun6qulqezoJB-NMO4q_wbrWuY36-tSzY_wgnC1NqAPFvrgZInRUa47szSL-3zqNRnyAdVxnT48W0WptAAL9ZyqXaZ0emCU5wSEAT-T8C-YlECLeufkVcpM_4bo388G8w16VrT6UIdpmPSitRtvSojO_znzqI8S28XZFIE1jeo4ufjo3wUjKMDA3wVhhUyyUC5-pwe9E7ZCmNI7aLMQU1-OSxZpkZW2Ai85S-tqoyE1SmMYNmapF5-1Y9WND4zG2h53q-ddAQYDsXl_Y6lCKY5HKqfq5PSKMwgZiZUbzq2uRHDi2mTP6f1Qp9wmA-tguvPm6VfL0bIHBwvKQxYkCg2YLDfJvm2AppZci6LHbVPV4WSE6zU73pTQhEW9NQTII4iGzhdf_iw3q9gm0bziAe8CflkpeeQYQhy2kaiiDW-PbYt9ymPK72DI4ObKVaJowX0x8UsjriMAGRlTzTGdumAk-zXRG6I10klC8KOlYOVR9wckJ5oaXelYIccFNPnr2TU0JMXZdIKv0383MK7HhGdi_fSWzaj3MBbXzJb47QsWyGfv-wbmiqaFgxlmNjxUKDVfyFT2OS1Lq2B-VP7vb977d3_lhiRPuAzFQYQDnuTtc_PXf5EZPYnO8Q&cid=CAASEuRoYHaEFWJqiy6RWYKalia1CQ&rfl=2%2C%2Chttps%253A%252F%252Fstaging.ideapod.com%252Fdistinguished-professor-explains-bitcoin-largest-ponzi-scheme-human-history%252F%2401
    

    Right now, there are over 27 of these overly long requests. As they don’t fit into a single packet, they can increase latency, as reported by gtmetrix.com.

    You can see the full report here:
    https://gtmetrix.com/reports/ideapod.com/CdOVOYmG

    If I remove the Ad Inserter plug-in, the same page that’s taking will take around 6 seconds to load, as opposed to 20 to 50 seconds.

    In there anything in particular that might cause such an issue? Caching or use of a CDN, for instance?

    Is there anything we can do about it?

    Thanks,

    Jonathan

    Ad Inserter itself does not generate such requests.
    It only inserts the code you configure.

    Of course, if you insert Javascript code (ads, tracking, etc.) this inserted code may generate such requests. And when you disable plugin your code is not inserted anymore so it can not generate requests.

    You can use debugging function Label Blocks to label inserted code blocks:
    https://adinserter.pro/documentation#debugging

    You can also disable all code blocks and then enable one by one to see the impact of each code block. Of course, take into account also header and footer code:
