Effectively exploiting available communication bandwidth and client resources is vital in wireless mobile environments. One technique for doing so is client-side data caching, which helps reduce latency and conserve network resources.The SliCache generic self-tunable cache-replacement policy addresses these issues by using intelligent slicing of the cache space and novel methods for selecting which objects to purge. Performance evaluations show that SliCache improves mobile clients' access to Web objects compared to other common policies.
