A Resource Efficient Multi-Dimensional Cache Management Strategy in Content Centric Networks
In-network cache management in Content-Centric Networking (CCN) has received significant interest from the research community in recent years. The default caching strategy of CCN is to store the content at each content-router (CR) along the downloading path. While this helps in increasing content availability and quality-of-experience (QoE) by reducing delay and the server load, the strategy is not resource-efficient as it increases the cache redundancy unnecessarily. A number of cache management schemes have been proposed to address the issue of resource utilization in CCN, and most of these schemes consider only one attribute of network while taking the content placement decision. This results in sub-optimal network performance as a single parameter may be useful for one scenario and may not be as effective for another. The resource utilization can be improved by considering multiple attributes simultaneously for cache management, which can result in better network performance even with dynamic environments. With this in mind, we propose an adaptive caching strategy, named as Multi-Attribute Caching (MAC) Strategy based on multi-parameters for CCN. MAC attempts to overcome inefficient cache utilization by intelligently selecting caching locations along the content delivery path. Simulation results show that MAC reduces cache load at each node while providing comparable delay and better cache hit rate using both synthetic and real network topologies.
