A Dynamic and Adaptive Cache Retrieval Scheme for Mobile Computing
Recent advances in wireless technologies have made the mobile computing a reality. In order to provide services of good quality to mobile users and improve the system performance, the mobile computing system is usually of a distributed server architecture. As users move to a new service area, the new server is expected to take over the execution of running programs for mobile users so as to reduce the communication overhead of the mobile system. This procedure is referred to as service handoff. Note that when service handoff occurs, the cache of the new server does not contain any data entry that was accessed by prior transactions and the new server will thus lose its advantages for cache access. To remedy this, we examine in this paper several cache retrieval schemes to improve the efficiency of cache retrieval. In particular, we analyze the impact of using a coordinator buffer to improve the overall performance of cache retrieval. Moreover, in light of the properties of transactions...
