Next: Simulation Model Up: Forwarding Requests among Reverse Previous: Forwarding Requests to Server

Simulation and Performance

 We have simulated the request forwarding mechanism and evaluated the two schemes for backbone bandwidth reduction, the basic scheme that forwards requests among reverse proxies and the expanded scheme that includes the content server into the candidates for request forwarding. Our simulation uses a trace of accesses to servers hosted by EasyWWW, AT&T's hosting service for small businesses.
