This paper describes the design and use of a synthetic Web proxy workload generator called ProWGen to investigate the sensitivity of Web proxy cache replacement policies to five selected Web workload characteristics. Three representative cache replacement policies are considered in the simulation study: a recency-based policy called Least-Recently-Used (LRU), a frequency-based policy called Least-Frequently-Used-with-Aging (LFU-Aging), and a size-based policy called Greedy-Dual-Size (GD-Size… CONTINUE READING
