A New Document Placement Scheme for Cooperative Caching on the Internet
Most existing work on cooperative caching has been focused on serving misses collaboratively. Very few have studied the effect of cooperation on document placement schemes and its potential enhancements on cache hit ratio and latency reduction. In this paper we propose a new document placement scheme called the EA Scheme, which takes into account the contentions at individual caches in order to limit the replication of documents within a cache group and increase document hit ratio. The main idea of this new scheme is to view the aggregate disk space of the cache group as a global resource of the group, and uses the concept of cache expiration age to measure the contention of individual caches. The decision of whether to cache a document at a proxy is made collectively among the caches that already have a copy of this document. The experiments show that the EA scheme yields higher hit rates and better response times compared to the existing document placement schemes used in most of th...
