I know This question might have been asked many times, but i’d appreciate the answer in 2021 too.
Basically, I use
ipfs-desktop on mac. Then , I add it as
ipfs add filename.txt
Then i check it on
myowngateway.com/ipfs/cid and also on
As it turns out,
myowngateway.com is so slow that 98% of the time, it never resolves to a file and just returns 504 timed out. As for the
ipfs.io , 85-90% of the time, it resolves to a file somehow quickly(sometimes takes 5 min too), but sometimes it just never resolves and hangs indefinatelly.
After I do
ipfs add filename.txt, I also check on another computer this command:
ipfs cat cid and it turns out this is super fast , immediatelly returns the file…
Question 1: How can I make sure that my gateway is fast and not this slow (as in never resolving to a file). Note that if
ipfs.io gateway loads the file, then my gateway also starts loading it instantly.
