Abstract

In this paper, we describe a Windows based Web cache simulator tool. This tool is able to process the IRCache based traces files and reproduce the behavior of a Web Proxy Cache. It can be configured to simulate fifteen replacement policies and two admission control policies. The cache size, the percentage of warm-up and the cost function of some replacement policies can also be configured. The simulations can be performed in a batch process and the results are stored in text format files that can be automatically analyzed using other tools like Matlab to obtain performance graphs
