Abstract
While algorithms for cooperative proxy caching have been
widely studied, little is understood about cooperative­
caching performance in the large­scale World Wide Web en­
vironment. This paper uses both trace­based analysis and
analytic modelling to show the potential advantages and
drawbacks of inter­proxy cooperation. With our traces, we
evaluate quantitatively the performance­improvement po­
tential of cooperation between 200 small­organization prox­
ies within a university environment, and between two large­
organization proxies handling 23,000 and 60,000 clients, re­
