The objective of cooperative caching is to improve data availability, improve access efficiency and reduce query delay in mobile Ad-Hoc networks. Many types of cache replacement algorithms like LRU, LFU, LFRU, LRU-MIN and LFU-MIN are used to improve data accessibility and reduce query delay in cluster based cooperative caching in Mobile Ad-Hoc networks. But they have some limitations such as accessing remote information station via multi hop communication leads to longer query latency and causes high energy consumption, many clients frequently access the database server they cause a high load on the server and reduce the server response time. Multi hop communication causes the network capacity degrades when network partition occurs.
