Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A new Web cache sharing scheme is presented. Our scheme reduces the duplicated copies of the same objects in global shared Web caches. It also reduces the message overhead of existing schemes significantly. Trace-driven simulations with actual Web cache logs show that the proposed scheme performs better than the two well-known Web cache sharing schemes, the Internet Cache Protocol and the Cache Array Routing Protocol.
