Opportunistic networks aim to provide reliable communications in an intermittently connected environment. The research in cache management of opportunistic networks has been done a lot in those aspects, such as queue strategy, cache replace, redundancy delete, etc. But most of the existing studies only focus on a subdivision of the buffer management. To deal with such case, this paper proposes a comprehensive integration buffer management strategy, called Comprehensive-Integrated buffer Management (CIM), which takes all information relevant to message delivery and network resources into consideration.
