Web proxy caches are a widely used tool to reduce the network load by storing often needed web pages. Increasing amounts of data transferred require new intelligent caching strategies with smarter replacement algorithms to predict, which web documents will be requested most likely in the future. However, these algorithms are relatively complex and require a lot of computing power. This paper describes an approach to design more intelligent and efficient web caches by adding a document filter that decides whether a document should be cached or whether it should be ignored in order to save disk space.
