Prefetches content from an origin server to L2 cache nodes. After the prefetch is completed, cache hits occur when users request the content for the first time. This reduces workloads on the origin server.

  • You can use an account to submit prefetch requests for a maximum of 500 URLs each day.
  • You cannot prefetch content based on directories by calling the operation.
  • The maximum number of times that each user can call this operation per second is 15.


OpenAPI Explorer automatically calculates the signature value. For your convenience, we recommend that you call this operation in OpenAPI Explorer. OpenAPI Explorer dynamically generates the sample code of the operation for different SDKs.
