ABSTRACT
<p>Various dynamic content caching approaches have been proposed to address the performance and scalability problems faced by many Web sites that utilize dynamic content generation applications. Proxy-based caching approaches store content at various locations outside the site infrastructure and can improve Web site performance by reducing content generation delays, firewall processing delays, and bandwidth requirements. However, existing proxy-based caching approaches either (a) cache at the page level, which does not guarantee that correct pages are served and provides very limited reusability,or (b) cache at the fragment level,which requires the use of pre-defined page layouts. To address these issues, several back end caching approaches have been proposed, including query result caching and fragment level caching. While back end approaches guarantee the correctness of results and offer the advantages of fine-grained caching, they neither address firewall delays nor reduce bandwidth requirements.</p> <p>In this paper,we present an approach and an implementation of a dynamic proxy caching technique which combines the benefits of both proxy-based and back end caching approaches, yet does not suffer from their above-mentioned limitations. Our analysis of the performance of our approach indicates that it is capable of providing significant reductions in bandwidth. Experimental results from an implementation of this approach indicate that our technique is capable of providing order-of-magnitude reductions in bandwidth.</p>
