Recency, Frequency and Time based Web Cache Replacement Policy for Improvement in Web Cache Performance: RFTP

Vipul Dholariya, Madhu Shukla


Due to the huge amount of internet users it’s create heavy network traffic, require high bandwidth and low latency period. Web Caching is the important technique to reach high performance and to increase the efficiency of browser. The object takes to much less time fetch from cache memory compare to original server. This paper gives a Recency Frequency Time based Policy over the traditional policy which has better performance, low overhead and is simple to implement and simulate. Simulations show that our algorithm performs better than Least-Recently-Used (LRU), WRP (Weighting and Ranking Policy).


LRU, WRP, Latency Period, Low Overhead.
