Executive Summary

The exponential growth of the World Wide Web (WWW) users has made the deployment of proxy servers popular on a network with limited resources. WWW clients perceive better response time, improved performance and speed when response to requested pages are served from the cache of a proxy server, resulting in faster response times after the first document fetch. This paper focuses on the development of a cyclic multicast proxy server through the use of a cyclic multicast engine for the delivery of popular web pages from the proxy server cache to increasingly large users under limited server capacity and network resources.
