Abstract--The exponential growth of the World Wide Web (WWW) users has made the deployment of proxy servers
 

Summary: Abstract--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 work 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. The cyclic multicast technique
would be more efficient for the delivery of highly requested web
pages from the cache to large numbers of receivers. We describe
the operation of the cyclic multicast proxy server and
characterized the gains in performance through simulation of the
cyclic multicast proxy server.
Index Terms--Caching, cyclic multicast, proxy server
performance, reliable unicast, scalable data delivery.
