Unpredictable cache performance of Confluence Cloud static content macros

Dear community,

I'm experiencing that the performance of the cache Confluence Cloud is using for static content macros is pretty unpredictable.

The initial or fresh load time of a page containing approx. 50 static content macros goes up to 14 seconds (50 * 250 ms response time for each request + x). However I'm experiencing that the fresh load time does not only appear once in a row of reloads but multiple times before Confluence Cloud (sometimes) decides to use it's cache. In case it does the load time goes down to 4 seconds.

I expected to see the initial load time only once followed by the load times when the cache is used until the cache expires.

Observerd example: 14s, 14s, 13s, 15s, 13s, 4s, 4s, 4s,...

Expected: 14s, 4s, 4s, 4s...

Did I miss something?

Thank you
