Energy Saving Strategies for Cooperative Cache Replacement in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
Source: Reed Elsevier
Data caching on mobile clients is widely seen as an effective solution to improve system performance. In particular, cooperative caching, based on the idea of sharing and coordination of cache data among multiple users, can be particularly effective for information access in mobile ad hoc networks where mobile clients are moving frequently and network topology is changing dynamically. Most existing cache strategies perform replacement independently, and they seldom consider coordinated replacement and energy saving issues in the context of a mobile ad hoc network. In this paper, the authors analyze the impact of energy on designing a cache replacement policy and formulate the Energy-efficient COordinated cache Replacement Problem (ECORP) as a 0-1 knapsack problem.
