Distributed Web caching allows multiple clients to quickly access a pool of popular Web pages. Conventional distributed Web caching schemes, e. g. , the Internet cache protocol and hash routing, require the sending of many query messages among cache servers and/or impose a large load on the cache servers when they are widely dispersed. To overcome these problems, we propose a hash-based query caching method using both a hash function and a query caching method. This method can find cached objects among several cache servers by using only one query message, enabling the construction of an efficient large-scale distributed Web cache server. Compared to conventional methods, this method reduces cache server overhead and object retrieval latency.
