Abstract

World wide web (WWW) traffic models are used to generate representative workloads that can be used for cache design and the study of "what if" scenarios for WWW-servers planning. Such models should incorporate the essential WWW traffic properties, including temporal locality, spatial locality, and popularity. In this paper, we propose a new WWW server traffic model that accurately captures these properties. Our model uses the inter-request distance string, which we found to be more accurate than the previously proposed stack distance approach in capturing traffic properties. Trace-driven simulation is used to demonstrate the goodness of the proposed model.
