I'm considering enabling Cloudflare for my site, which will make it so that static content is loaded from their servers instead of mine. If that's the case, how can I tally the request in our analytics platform for that piece of static content? How can I know how many times it was downloaded?
Currently we handle this server-side. That is, when somebody requests a PDF, we use an API to tally that in our analytics tool. But we'll never see the request at all if things are working properly, so....how to handle this?
