COACS: A Cooperative and Adaptive Caching System for MANETs
This paper introduces a cooperation-based database caching system for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs). The heart of the system is the nodes that cache submitted queries. The queries are used as indexes to data cached in nodes that previously requested them. We discuss how the system is formed and how the requested data is found if cached or retrieved from the external database and then cached. Analysis is performed, and expressions are derived for the different parameters, including the upper and lower bounds for the number of query caching nodes and the average load they experience, generated network traffic, node bandwidth consumption, and other performance-related measures. Simulations with the ns-2 software were used to study the performance of the system in terms of average delay and hit ratio and to compare it with the performance of two other caching schemes for MANETs, namely, CachePath and CacheData. The results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed system in terms of ...
