Value
Description
HIT
The response was served from the edge.
MISS
The response was not found in the edge and so was fetched from an origin server.

The cache was bypassed and so the response was served from an origin server.
EXPIRED
The entry in the cache has expired. The response is served from an origin server.
STALE
The response from the cache is outdated but another visitor has already requested the response and the edge node is processing the revalidation.
UPDATING
The response is stale as the entry is currently being updated due to a previous request.
REVALIDATED
The response from the cache was stale but it was revalidated by checking If-Modified-Since or If-None-Match headers.
