Analytical models are developed for seven existing cache protocols, namely, Write-Once, Write-Through, Synapse, Berkeley, Illinois, Firefly, and Dragon. The protocols are implemented on a multiprocessor with a packet-switched shared bus. The models are based on queuing networks that consist of both open and closed classes of customers. The models incorporate the requests for invalidation signal
