Upgrade to 3.0 causing weird behavior - first request to google regional sites? - shmilla - 03-06-2017 02:45 AM

We upgraded our private instances:
WPT 3.0
Agent 3.6.2
We currently host on Amazon (AWS).

We are seeing that the request which is to www.(customer name).com has the first request in WPT shown as a request to regional google sites. For example in tokyo we see the first request is
https://www.google.co.jp/
and some ireland tests show
https://www.google.ie/

what's weird is it's not all three runs, we see it on one or two, causing the median shifting to the skewed result.

It turns out both my issues were related to some prewarming functionality in WPT for certain caches. It sounds like a race was lost and so we see the response late. Likely why we only saw it in our 3G tests. Patrick has, most awesomely, provided a patch
