Efficient index caching for data dissemination in mobile computing environments
Due to the limited power supply of mobile devices, much research has been done on reducing the power consumption of mobile devices in mobile computing environments. Since supporting indices on the broadcast data items can effectively reduce the power consumption of the mobile clients, most of the existing research on data broadcasting has focused on designing efficient indexing schemes. In this paper, we propose to cache indices on the mobile clients and to use cached indices to facilitate the access of the broadcast data items. To manage the cache usage of the mobile clients, we propose two cache management policies. The lowerlevel-index-first policy caches the index nodes that are at the lower level of the index tree, while the cut-plane-first policy caches the index nodes that belong to a cut-plane of the index tree. Through experiments, we compare the performance of the two proposed policies with some existing policies in terms of tuning time and access time. The experiments show ...
