1 ClietServer Computig WWW Traffic Reductio ad Load Balacig through ServerBased Cachig Azer Bestavros Bosto Uiversity This cachig protocol exploits the geographic ad temporal locality of referece exhibited i clietaccess patters. It automatically ad dyamically dissemiates popular data toward cosumers. Arecet solicitatio from the Natioal Sciece Foudatio deemed two research topics critical for projected applicatios of the Natioal Iformatio Ifrastructure: New techiques for orgaizig cache memories ad other bufferig schemes to alleviate memory ad etwork latecy ad to icrease badwidth. Partitioig ad distributio of system resources throughout a distributed system to reduce the amout of data that must be moved. Most cachig studies for large distributed iformatio systems cocetrate o clietbased cachig, which caches recetly ad frequetly accessed iformatio at the cliet (or at a proxy thereof) i aticipatio of future accesses to that iformatio (see the Clietbased cachig research sidebar). However, these techiques are myopic: they focus exclusively o cachig at a particular cliet or set of cliets, ad hece are likely to have limited impact. The Object Cachig Eviromets for Applicatios ad Network Services (Oceas) group, part of Bosto Uiversity s Computer Sciece Departmet, has developed a more global solutio that allows the replicatio of iformatio o a supplyaddemad basis. This process is cotrolled by servers, which uquestioably have a better view of dataaccess patters tha cliets have /97/$. 997 IEEE IEEE Cocurrecy
2 Clietbased cachig research Usually, clietbased cachig research has dealt with distributed file systems such as the Su NFS, 2 the Adrew File System, 3 ad the Coda system. 4 Recetly, some researchers have tried to exted these techiques to distributed iformatio systems such as FTP ad HTTP. Peter Dazig, Richard Hall, ad Michael Schwartz have studied cachig to reduce the badwidth requiremets for the FTP protocol o the NSFet. 5 Their study shows that a hierarchical cachig system that caches files at core odal switchig subsystems reduces the NSFet backboe traffic by 2%. Swarup Acharya ad Staley Zdoik have studied how data placemet ad replicatio affect etwork traffic, usig file access patters to suggest a distributed dyamic replicatio scheme. 6 Christos Papadimitrou, Sriivas Ramaatha, ad P. Vekat Raga have suggested a more static solutio based o fixed etwork ad storage costs for the delivery of multimedia home etertaimet. 7 Susa Eggers ad Rady Katz have simulated a twolevel cachig system that reduces etwork ad server loads. 8 Matthew Blaze has proposed a dyamic hierarchical file system that supports demaddrive replicatio, whereby cliets ca service requests issued by other cliets from the local disk cache. 9 Michael Dahli ad his colleagues have suggested a similar cooperative cachig idea. Steve Glassma preseted oe of the earliest attempts at cachig o the Web. His method orgaized satellite relays (proxy caches) ito a treestructured hierarchy, with cache misses i lower relays percolatig up through higher relays util the requested object is foud. The performace of this cachig system for a sigle relay with a rather small cache idicated that maitaiig a fairly stable 33% hit rate is possible. Usig a Zipfbased model, Glassma extrapolated the performace of such a system for large caches. (A Zipfbased model is a simulatio model that uses a Zipf distributio, whose parameters are estimated empirically from traces, to sythetically model the popularity of documets.) I particular, he estimated that with a ifiitesize cache, the maximum achievable hit rate is 4%. Mimi Recker ad James Pitkow made aother early attempt to characterize Web access patters to egieer Web cachig systems. 2 They based their model for Web iformatio access o two metrics borrowed from psychology research o huma memory: the frequecy ad rececy rates of past accesses. Stephe Williams ad his colleagues preset a taxoomy (ad compare the performace) of a umber of proxy cache replacemet policies. 3 Their work suggests that proxy cache maagemet should cosider documet sizes whe makig replacemet decisios. JeaChrysostome Bolot ad Philipp Hoschka have cofirmed this idea. 4 They showed the usefuless of usig iformatio about documet size ad etwork load i the replacemet algorithms of Web caches, based o timeseriesaalysis techiques of Web traffic. Marc Abrams ad his colleagues have preseted similar results about the iadequacy of classic LRU (least recetly used) cache replacemet. 5 Refereces. J.H.

3 Cache expasio idex Slope of o geographic locality of referece Slope of perfect geographic locality of referece 2 Our protocol reduces the load o popular servers by duplicatig (o other servers) a small percetage of their data. The extet of this duplicatio (how much, where, ad o how may sites) depeds o two factors: the server s popularity ad the expected reductio i traffic if the dissemiatio is i a particular directio. I other words, our protocol provides a mechaism that automatically ad dyamically dissemiates popular data toward cosumers the more popular the data, the closer it gets to the cliets. Demadbased dissemiatio of iformatio from producers to cosumers is ot a ew idea: it is used i the retail ad ewspaper busiesses, amog other thigs. I this article, I propose the same philosophy for distributed iformatio systems. (See the Related work sidebar for research similar to ours.) We used the World Wide Web as the uderlyig distributed computig resource to be maaged. First, the WWW offers a umatched opportuity to ispect a wide rage of distributed object types, structures, ad sizes. Secod, thousads of istitutios worldwide have fully deployed the WWW, which gives us a uparalleled opportuity to apply our fidigs to a realworld applicatio. Usig extesive log data from HTTP servers, we ve developed a aalytical model of our protocol. This model demostrates how to implemet such dissemiatio, both efficietly ad with miimal chages to the Iteret s prevailig clietserver ifrastructure. Tracedrive simulatios based o the data have quatified the potetial performace gais from dissemiatio. 3 Number of cliets Byte hit rate 6% 8% % 2% Figure. The cache expasio idex (the rate at which the proxy cache should be iflated to maitai a costat byte hit rate). 4 5 Clietbased cachig ad locality of referece I a comprehesive study of clietbased cachig for the Web, the Oceas group established its limited effectiveess for very large distributed iformatio systems. 2 The study measured the effectiveess of sessio cachig, host cachig, ad LAN proxy cachig, usig a uique set of 5,7 cliet traces (almost 6, URL requests) that we obtaied by istrumetig Mosaic. 3 We cocluded that LAN proxy cachig is ultimately limited by the low level of sharig of remote documets amog cliets of the same site. This fidig agrees with Steve Glassma s predictios 4 ad was further cofirmed for geeral proxy cachig by Marc Abrams ad his colleagues. 5 To uderstad clietbased cachig s limited effectiveess, we eed to cosider how locality of referece cotributes to ehaced cache performace. Access patters i a distributed iformatio system (such as the WWW) exhibit three locality of referece properties: temporal, geographical, ad spatial. Temporal locality implies that recetly accessed objects will likely be accessed agai. Geographical locality implies that a object accessed by a cliet will likely be accessed agai by earby cliets. This property is similar to the processor locality of referece exhibited i parallel applicatios. 6 Spatial locality implies that a object ear a recetly accessed object will likely be accessed. If clietbased cachig occurs o a persessio basis (that is, the cache is cleared at the start of each cliet sessio), oly temporal locality of referece ca be exploited. The results of our clietbased cachig study suggest that for a sigle cliet, the temporal locality of referece is quite limited, especially for remote documets. I particular, we foud that eve with a ifiite cache size, the average byte hit rate is limited to 36% ad could be as low as 6% for some cliet traces. (The byte hit rate is a ormalized hit rate that takes ito accout the size of the objects that are accessed.) This poor performace could be attributed to the surfig behavior of cliets, which implies that recetly examied documets are rarely revisited. If clietbased cachig is o a persite basis (that is, all cliets share a commo proxy cache), you would expect improved cache performace as a result of the geographical locality of referece. However, the results of our study suggest that for remote documets, the amout of sharig betwee cliets is limited. I particular, we foud that eve with a ifiite proxy cache size, the average byte hit rate improves oly from 36% to 5%. 58 IEEE Cocurrecy

It plots the cache expasio idex: the rate at which the proxy cache (called LAN cache i our study) should be iflated to maitai a costat byte hit rate. The figure idicates that the CEI is proportioal to the umber of cliets (N) sharig the proxy cache. For a large umber of cliets cocurretly usig the cache, the CEI is liearly related to N ad does ot seem to level off. Figure does ot imply that the relatioship betwee the CEI ad N will cotiue to be liear for eve larger values of N; it oly implies that for the levels of cocurrecy likely to be aggregated at a sigle site through a proxy cache, the relatioship is liear. To get a higher level of cocurrecy, we eed to thik about a ecoomy of scale far beyod what a proxy cache at, say, a orgaizatio ca provide. Therefore, temporal ad geographical locality of referece for WWW access patters are ot strog eough to result i a effective cachig strategy at a sigle cliet or site. However, we ca exploit temporal ad geographical locality of referece o a much larger scale (for example, thousads of cliets), as I ll explai. The premise of dissemiatio To quatify the available locality of referece that could be exploited o the WWW, we collected extesive server traces from the HTTP server of Bosto Uiversity s Computer Sciece Departmet (http://cswww. bu.edu) ad from the HTTP server of the Rollig Stoes Web site (http://www.stoes.com/). Table summarizes these traces. Uless I state otherwise, this data drove our model validatio ad trace simulatios. Carlos Cuha, Mark Crovell, ad I have documeted the highly ueve popularity of various Web documets. 3 This study cofirmed the applicability of Zipf s law 7,8 to Web documets. Zipf s law origially applied to the relatioship betwee a word s popularity i terms of rak ad its frequecy of use (it has subsequetly bee applied to other examples of popularity i the social scieces.). It states that if you rak the popularity of words i a give text (ρ) by their frequecy of use (P), the P /ρ. This distributio is a parameterless hyperbolic distributio that is, ρ is raised to exactly, so that the thmostpopular documet is exactly twice as likely to be accessed as the 2thmostpopular documet. Our data shows that Zipf s law applies quite strogly to Web documets serviced by Web servers. Figure 2a demostrates this for all 2,8 documets accessed i data set (see Table ). The figure shows a loglog plot of the total umber of refereces (y axis) to each documet as a fuctio of the documet s rak i overall popularity (x axis). The tightess of the fit to a straight lie is strog (R 2 =.99), as is the lie s slope:.95 (show i the figure). So, the expoet relatig popularity to rak for Web documets is very early, as Zipf s law predicted. Out of some 2+ files available through the WWW server, the most popular 256 Kbyte block of documets (that is,.5% of all available Related work James Gwertzma ad Margo Seltzer s research is closest to ours. I particular, they propose geographical pushcachig. This method lets servers decide whe ad where to cache iformatio, based o geographical iformatio: the distace i miles betwee servers ad cliets. Their work assumes that the physical distace betwee two Iteret odes correlates with the umber of hops betwee these odes. Abdelsalam Heddaya ad Sulaima Mirdad attempt to achieve loadbalacig amog servers through automatic documet dissemiatio by addig a cachig compoet to routig protocols. 2 Such a approach requires the implemetatio of ew trasport protocols ad thus does ot apply to curret TCP/IPbased etworks.

Oly % of all blocks accouted for 9% of all requests! This observatio leads to the followig questio: How much badwidth could be saved if requests for popular documets from outside the LAN were hadled at a earlier stage (for example, usig a proxy at the edge of the orgaizatio)? Figure 2b shows the percetage of the server load (measured i total bytes serviced) that would be saved if some other server serviced various block sizes, startig with the most popular blocks ad progressig to less popular blocks. We corroborated our observatios by aalyzig the HTTP logs of the Rollig Stoes server from November, 994, to February 9, 995. As Table shows, this server ulike the cswww.bu.edu HTTP server is iteded to serve remote cliets exclusively. It is a very popular server, servicig more tha Gbyte of multimedia iformatio per day to tes of thousads of (distict) cliets. (Durig the aalysis period, the server hadled,9,46,92 bytes per day, ad 6,46 cliets retrieved at least files.) Figure 3a shows the access frequecy for all documets that were serviced at least oce. Figure 3b shows the percetage of the remote badwidth that would be saved if some other server hadled various block sizes of decreasig popularity. Of the 4 MBytes of iformatio accessed at least oce (the total umber of bytes available from that server is much larger tha 4 MBytes), oly 2 MBytes (5.25%) were resposible for 85% of the traffic. A closer look at the logs of which is a typical server that caters primarily to local cliets, reveals three classes of documets. Figure 4 shows the ratio of remotetolocal (ad localtoremote) accesses for each of the 974 documets accessed at least oce. Of these documets, 99 had a access ratio larger tha 85% these are remotely popular documets; 5 documets had a access ratio smaller tha 5% these are locally popular documets; 365 documets had a access ratio betwee 85% ad 5% these are globally popular documets. Servers could easily classify documets ito these three classes (based o temporal ad geographical locality of referece), to decide which documets to dissemiate ad where to dissemiate them. A importat factor that could affect our dissemiatio protocol s performace is the rate at which popular documets are updated. The more frequetly these documets are updated, the more frequetly the home server must refresh the replicas at the proxies. I a related study, we moitored the date of last update of remotely, locally, ad globally popular documets for a sixmoth (26week) period. 9 The period started with the 56day period of Table, ad cotiued for aother 26 days. Both remotely popular ad globally popular documets were updated very ifrequetly (less tha.5% update probability per documet per day). Locally popular documets were updated more frequetly (about 2% update probability per documet per day). (We couted multiple updates to a documet i oe day 6 IEEE Cocurrecy

James Gwertzma ad Margo Seltzer have further ivestigated the sigificace of these fidigs, i the cotext of WWW cache cosistecy. System model ad aalysis 5 I our model, home servers (producers) dissemiate iformatio to service proxies (agets) closer to cliets (cosumers). We assume a maytomay mappig betwee home servers ad service proxies. A service proxy ad the set of home servers it represets form a cluster. We model the WWW as a hierarchy of such clusters. Our otio of a service proxy is similar to that of a cliet proxy, except that the service proxy acts o behalf of a cluster of servers rather tha a cluster of cliets. I practice, we evisio service proxies to be iformatio outlets that are available throughout the Iteret, ad whose badwidth could be, for example, reted. Alterately, service proxies could be public egies, part of a atioal computer iformatio ifrastructure, similar to the NSF backboe. For the remaider of this article, proxy meas a service proxy. Our model does ot limit the umber of proxies that could be used to frot ed a particular server. Each server i the system might belog to a umber of clusters, ad thus might have a umber of proxies actig o its behalf, thereby dissemiatig its documets alog multiple routes (or toward various subetworks). A server ca use (through biddig, for example) a subset of these proxies to dissemiate its data to cliets. For a give home server, we view the WWW clietele as a tree rooted at the server. The tree s leaves are the cliets, ad the iteral odes are the potetial proxies. I Performace evaluatio, I ll describe a efficiet techique for buildig such a tree. Furthermore, by aalyzig the access patters of cliets (as recorded i the server logs), we ca optimally locate the set of odes to use as proxies for that home server. (We did this for the home server, whose 26 week clietele tree cosisted of more tha 34, odes.) A RESOURCE ALLOCATION STRATEGY AT SERVICE PROXIES Let C = S, S, S 2,, S deote all the servers i a cluster, where server S is distiguished as the proxy of cluster C. Let R i deote the total umber of bytes per Jauary March 997 6
7 uit time (say, oe day) serviced by S i i C to cliets outside that cluster. Furthermore, let H i (b) deote the probability that a request for a documet o S i ca be serviced at proxy S as a result of dissemiatig the most popular b bytes from S i to S. Fially, let B i deote the umber of bytes that proxy S duplicates from server S i, ad let B deote the total storage space available at proxy S (that is, B = B + B B ). By iterceptig requests from outside the cluster, S should be able to service a fractio, α C, of these requests. α C = Ri () The objective of S is to allocate storage spaces B, B 2,, B to maximize the value of α C, subject to the costrait that B B + B B. This is a costraiedmaximum problem, which ca be solved usig the Lagrage multiplier theorem. Thus, the maximum for α C occurs whe for all j =, 2,,, δ α δb δ δb j j C = R H ( B ) i i i k, for a costat k Ri Hi( Bi) = k Ri Ri hj( Bj)= k R j (2) where h j (B j ) deotes the probability desity fuctio correspodig to H j (B j ). Equatio 2 uses the value of k (the Lagrage multiplier) to satisfy B = B + B B. Our desire to make our protocol useful restricts the type of assumptios we could make. Thus, i our protocol, we have avoided usig ay parameters that could ot be readily estimated from available logs of etwork protocols (for example, HTTP ad FTP). However, future work alog the same lies could use other iformatio to better tue the system. For example, if iformatio about the commuicatio cost betwee servers, proxies, ad cliets is available, our protocol could be easily adapted to weigh such kowledge ito our resourceallocatio methodology. ANALYSIS UNDER AN EXPONENTIAL POPULARITY MODEL We ll use a expoetial model to approximate the fuctio H i (b). We assume that for i =, 2,,, H b e i b i()= λ, where λ i is the distributio s costat. The probability desity fuctio to H i (b) is h i (b), where δ h b b H b e λi b i()= i()= λi δ (3) Give a server S j, where j, we substitute for h j (b) i Equatio 2 to get a value for B j. λ j R j j B j = log λ k Ri (4) Equatio 4 specifies a set of equatios to ratio the total bufferig space B available at S amog the servers S i, for i =, 2,,. To do so, we must fid the value of the costat k. We do this by observig the requiremet that B B + B B, which results i this expressio for k: ( λiri) λi λi k = B e Ri (5) Substitutig for k from Equatio 5 ito Equatio 4, we get the optimum storage capacity to allocate o S for a particular server S j, where j. These calculatios require that R i ad λ i be estimated, for i =, 2,,. This ca be easily ad efficietly computed from the server logs. Actually, Figure 2 was produced by a program that computed these parameters for cswww. bu.edu. Moreover, our measuremets suggest that these parameters are quite static, i that they chage oly slightly over time. Hece, the calculatio of R i ad λ i, as well as the allocatio of storage space o S for servers S i, for i =, 2,,, eed ot be doe frequetly. They could occur either off lie or periodically (for example, weekly). SPECIAL CASES To help explai our demadbased documetdissemiatio protocol, I ll preset three special cases. Equally effective duplicatio Let λ i = λ for i =, 2,,. That is, let s assume that the 62 IEEE Cocurrecy
8 reductio i badwidth that results from duplicatig some umber of bytes from a particular server S j is equal to the reductio i badwidth that results from duplicatig the same umber of bytes from ay other server S i for i =, 2,,. Substitutig i Equatio 5 ad the Equatio 4, we get B R j B j = + λ log Ri (6) Equatio 6 suggests that popular servers are allocated extra storage capacity o the proxy. This extra storage depeds o two factors: /λ, which is a measure of duplicatio effectiveess, ad log R j Ri which reflects a server s popularity relative to the geometric mea of all servers i the system. This dual depedecy o duplicatio effectiveess ad relative popularity gives us a hadle o how to exted our results for arbitrary distributios of H i (b). I particular, if the skewess of H i (b) ca be measured for a particular server (by aalyzig its logs, as suggested earlier), this measure ca be used istead of /λ. Equally popular servers Let R i = R for i =, 2,,. That is, let s assume that all servers i the system are equally popular. Substitutig i Equatio 5 ad the i Equatio 4, we get j λ Bj = B + log λ j λi λi λi (7) Equatio 7 suggests that servers whose data are accessed more uiformly (that is, servers with a smaller λ) should be allotted more storage capacity o the proxy as log as the proxy s total capacity is large eough (that is, B /λ i ). However, if the server s capacity is ot big eough, servers with itermediate values for λ should be favored. Figure 5 shows the optimal storage capacity to allocate to server S j for various values of λ j, assumig that all other servers have equal λ i ad that B = /λ i (tight) or B = /λ i (lax), for i ad i j. Storage capacity alloted (%) Symmetric clusters To appreciate the effectiveess of demadbased documet dissemiatio, let s cosider a symmetric cluster, where all servers have idetical values for R i ad λ i. From Equatio 5 ad Equatio 4, we get B As expected, Equatio 8 equally allocates storage o S for all the servers i the cluster. By substitutig the value of B j ito Equatio, we get α Figure 5. Storage allocatio for R i = R ad B = /λ i. λ j, the costat of the H j (b) distributio itroduced i Equatio 3, measures how skewed H j (b) is. j C 3 3 3, λ = log λ e = R H B λ B Lax resources B = λi N = 2 N = 4 N = 64 R R = e B = B λ R (9) Equatio 9 could be used to estimate the storage requiremets o the proxy as a fuctio α: B = log λ α C () Assume, for example, that the server is oe of servers whose most popular data are duplicated o a proxy. Equatio suggests that to reduce the remote badwidth by 9% o all servers, the proxy must secure 36 Mbytes to be divided equally amog all servers. This assumes a value of λ = , which we estimated from the HTTP demo logs o the cswww.bu.edu server. With a storage capacity of 5 λ j λ Tight resources B = λi N = 2 N = 4 N = 64 (8) Jauary March

(a) Number of proxies Mbytes, a proxy could shield servers from as much as 96% of their remote badwidth. These umbers raise a legitimate questio: If oe proxy serves 96% of all remote accesses to servers (or eve 9% of all accesses to servers), wo t that proxy be a performace bottleeck? Yes, uless the process of dissemiatig popular iformatio cotiues for aother level, ad so o. If that is ot possible, the aother solutio would be for the proxy to dyamically adjust the level of shieldig it provides for its costituet servers. I other words, whe the proxy becomes overloaded, B decreases, thus forcig more of the requests back to the servers. Performace evaluatio To evaluate our dissemiatio protocol, we had to devise a realistic clusterig of the Iteret to reflect our dissemiatio model. Several criteria could determie this clusterig. Oe criteria could be geographical iformatio (for example, distace i miles betwee cliets). Aother could be the istitutioal or etwork boudaries (for example, oe service proxy per istitutio or etwork). We based the clusterig o the structure of the routes betwee a server ad its cliets. Such a clusterig (based o the distace betwee the server ad cliet measured i actual route hops) lets us quatify the savigs achievable through dissemiatio, because it lets us measure the badwidth saved i bytes hops uits. Usig the record route optio of TCP/IP, it is possible to build a complete serverproxycliet tree. We built such a tree for all traceable cliets of cswww.bu.edu. A traceable cliet is a cliet for which traceroute() succeeded i idetifyig a route that remaied cosistet over several traceroute experimets.

The secod is withi four to ie hops ad represets cliets o the New Eglad Academic ad Research etwork (NEARet). The third is greater tha ie hops away ad represets WAN cliets. For servers where WAN cliets geerate most of the demad, Figure 6 suggests that popular documets could be dissemiated as much as eight to ie hops from the server. Such a dissemiatio would result i large savigs. Specifically, 64 IEEE Cocurrecy
10 6 5 5 weeks 3 weeks 2 weeks replicatig the most popular 25 Mbytes from stoes.com o proxies eight to ie hops closer to cliets would yield a whoppig daily etwork badwidth savigs of more tha 8 Gbytes hops. We simulated our dissemiatio strategy based o the structure of this servertocliet routig tree. (Aalysis of logs suggests that the tree s shape especially iteral odes ad the load distributio are quite static over time.) The 26week traces obtaied from (data set 2 i Table ) drove our simulatios. Our simulatios dissemiated replicas of the most popular files o every week, dow to proxies closer to the cliets. The locatio of such proxies depeded o the demad durig the previous moth from the various parts of the tree. (Our protocol proved to be quite robust with respect to the frequecy of dissemiatio ad the history legth used to establish file popularity profiles. Because of space limitatios, I have t icluded simulatio results to support this.) Our geeral dissemiatio protocol assumes a hierarchy of proxies. Our implemetatio of this idea was simpler; we flatteed the hierarchy by havig the home server use the access patters of all its cliets to compute the ultimate placemet for the replicas. I other words, our simulatios did ot cosider multilevel proxies, as would be possible uder the geeral dissemiatio model. We assumed that ay iteral ode is available as a service proxy. I a real system, this assumptio might ot be valid because iteral odes are routers, ulikely to be available as service proxies. We evisio that i practice, the set of proxies available for ret by a particular server could be matched up to the optimum places determied by our protocol. The simulatios required cliets to always request service from the home server. If the requested documets are available at proxies closer to the cliet, the home server forwards the request to the proxy that is closest to the cliet. This forwardig mechaism is supported by the HTTP protocol ad requires much less overhead tha the more geeral hierarchical ameresolutio strategy. 2 The simulatios also assumed that the cost of propagatig updates to proxies ca be igored. To validate this assumptio, cosider the ratio of a popular documet s umber of chages per uit time to its umber of accesses per uit time. As I oted earlier, popular documets are updated least. So, that ratio will be very small Bytes hops saved (%) Number of proxies 5 week Figure 8. The algorithm s sesitivity to the legth of the history that is used to compute the popularity profile. (we measured it at less tha. for popular documets). Thus, the iaccuracy of our simulatios (by ot takig ito accout the cost of propagatig updates) is isigificat. Figure 7a shows the reductio i badwidth (measured i bytes hops) that is achievable by dissemiatig differet amouts of the most popular data. The figure shows two curves. I the first, the system dissemiates the most popular % of the data; whereas i the secod, it dissemiates the most popular 4% of the data. A larger umber of proxies results i a deeper dissemiatio ad, thus, larger badwidth savigs. Figure 7b shows the reductio i home server load (measured i bytes) achievable by dissemiatig 4% of the most popular data. Figure 7a shows that the dissemiatio of a very small amout of data causes most of the badwidth savigs. For example, icreasig the level of dissemiatio by 5% (from 2 Mbytes per service proxy to 5 Mbytes per service proxy) results i a meager 6% additioal badwidth savigs. Also, most of the saved badwidth results from usig a small umber of service proxies. For example, triplig the umber of service proxies from 2 to 6 saves oly 2% additioal badwidth. Fially, Figure 7 shows that the payoff per replica decreases as the umber of replicas icreases. Figure 8 shows our algorithm s sesitivity to chages i the popularity profile for documets o the home server. I particular, it shows the performace results for four experimets, i which the dissemiatio occurred oce a week, usig the logs of the previous weeks to compute the popularity profile, for =, 2, 3, ad 5. For these experimets, the system dissemiated the % most popular data (computed over the week period). The figure shows that the loger the history Jauary March
11 that is used to compute the popularity profile, the better the performace, especially whe the umber of proxies is large. Our simulatio dissemiated the same data to all proxies. Better results are attaiable if the dissemiatio strategy takes greater advatage of the geographic locality of referece (by dissemiatig differet data to differet proxies based o the access patters of cliets served by each proxy). These experimets demostrate the potetial savigs from dissemiatio. More experimets are eeded to geeralize these fidigs by cosiderig traces from a larger set of servers. Also, more experimets are eeded to study the effects of dissemiatio from competig service proxies. Fially, the Web is evolvig i terms of types of iformatio ad how this iformatio is preseted (for example, the icreases i Commo Gate Iterface queries, Java applets, ad scripts). This evolutio might require the developmet of more elaborate dissemiatio protocols. clietbased protocols cocers dyamic server selectio, itroduced by Mark Crovella ad Robert Carter. 3 The primary purpose of a clietbased dyamic serverselectio protocol is to determie o the spot which oe of several servers to use to retrieve a documet replicated o all the servers. This selectio is based o dyamic measuremets that attempt to locate the server with the least cogested route. Such a techique could complemet dissemiatio by allowig servers to commuicate with cliets the locatio of all (or some) replicas that are deemed close to the cliet. The clietbased serverselectio protocol would have the fial decisio as to which replica to retrieve based o the dyamic coditios of the etwork. The protocol I ve preseted exemplifies the potetial of clietaccess patters i egieerig scaleable protocols ad services i largescale distributed iformatio systems (such as the WWW). Ocea is developig prototypes to test ad evaluate similar protocols. The basic premise of our work is that servers are i a uique positio to decide which documets are worth replicatig through dissemiatio, how may replicas should be dissemiated, ad where to place these replicas. This, however, does ot imply that cliets ad their proxies do ot (or should ot) play a role i improvig the performace of iformatio retrieval ad i alleviatig commuicatio bottleecks. For example, our work is ot a substitute for clietbased cachig; rather, it is a complemet. Clietbased cachig s primary purpose is to reduce the latecy of iformatio retrieval, whereas iformatio dissemiatio s primary purpose is to reduce traffic ad balace the load amog servers. Of course, these purposes are ot completely idepedet a protocol whose primary purpose is to reduce traffic ad balace load is likely to improve the latecy of iformatio retrieval. Nevertheless, the highest reductio i latecy will likely result from a protocol whose primary purpose is to do just that (clietbased cachig i this case).
