Web caches will have an important role in reducing server loads, client request latencies, and network traffic. Web caching is a well-known technique for reducing access latencies and bandwidth consumption. As in caching systems, a replacement policy is necessary for determining when and what to evict from the cache, and many proxy caching algorithms have been proposed and evaluated. This topic analyzes the distribution of current web contents and re-evaluates various proxy cache replacement algorithms including LFU, LRU and MRU. a local policy that maintains a list of popular URLs and a global policy that partitions the cache into distinct regions. And maintaining the personalized cache.
