As the heterogeneity of Web clients increasing, the differentiated service becomes an important issue especially for e-commerce Web site. Web caching as a key accelerator on the Internet plays an important role in alleviating the client-perceived delay. To meet the Service Level Agreement (SLA) for clients without excessively over-provisioning resources, this paper proposes and evaluates a novel framework for enforcing Proportional Hit Rate. The framework combines the implement of Isolated Cache Model and the usage of control-theoretical approach for storage control. With system identification, the linear model is identified as well as the controller.
