Due to the increase in popularity of the World Wide Web (WWW) has introduced new issues such as Internet traffic and bandwidth consumption. Recently, much research has focused on improving Web performance by reducing the bandwidth consumption and WWW traffic. Web proxy caching is a well-known technique for reducing access latencies and bandwidth consumption. As in other caching systems, a replacement policy is necessary for determining when and what to evict from the cache, and many proxy caching algorithms have been earlier. In this paper, the authors propose a server side web caching algorithm in order to overcome various issues of web proxy caching such as load balancing, transparency, scalability and cache miss.
