Site-autonomous distributed semantic caching
Semantic caching augments cached data with a semantic description of the data. These semantic descriptions can be used to improve execution time for similar queries by retrieving some data from cache and issuing a remainder query for the rest. This is an improvement over traditional page caching, since caches are no longer limited to only base tables but are extended to contain intermediate results. In large-scale distributed database systems, using a central server with complete knowledge of the system will be a serious bottleneck and single point of failure. In this paper, we propose a distributed semantic caching method where sites make autonomous caching decisions based on locally available information, thereby reducing the need for centralized control. We implement the method in the DASCOSA-DB distributed database system prototype and use this implementation to do experiments that show the applicability and efficiency of our approach. Our evaluation shows that execution times fo...
