HW1: Web Cache Simulator

CS395t: Web Operating Systems

Spring 2001

Due: Wednesday Feb 14 in class

Each person in class should work individually on this project.

Problem statement

A key technique for doing research on wide-area (and other) systems is simulation. In the class we will build a few small simulators to become familiar with some of the techniques.

In this homework, you will construct a simulator to measure some of the basic properties of HTML traffic.

Building a simple simulator is easy. But you have to make assumptions and inferences about the workload. A focus of this homework is considering and quantifying possible sources of error from your study.
