Summary: Abstract--The use of proxy server could help provide adequate
access and response time to large numbers of World Wide Web
(WWW) users requesting previously accessed page. While some
studies have reported performance increase due to the use of
proxy servers, a study reported performance decrease associated
with the use of proxy server. Due to lack of recently published
scholarly article that test the performance of proxy server, we
carry out an in-depth study of the behavior of a proxy server
over a six month period. The result of the study showed that hit
ratios of the proxy servers range between 21% to 39% and over
70% of web pages are dynamic. The study indicates the
effectiveness of the proxy server and helps evaluate the tradeoff
between money spent on higher bandwidth lower latency
connections, versus the cost/performance of using a caching
intermediary.
Index Terms-- caching, hit ratios, Proxy performance,
workload characterization.
I. INTRODUCTION
The WWW has witnessed significant growth in the last few
decades; this is due partly to the large numbers of users and
