Web Caching. (Information Sources).
In his book, "Web Caching' (O'Reilly, [pounds sterling]28.50), Duane Wessels explains the theory and benefits of web caching. He also explores the politics that surround web caching, touching on the fears of security, privacy, and copyright infringement that, accompany the topic. Rather than dismissing these fears outright, Wessels examines the thinking behind them, and provides insightful solutions in a way that administrators will thoroughly understand the issues and the choices they have for dealing with them. As Wessels shows, web caching, when properly done, can be a boon to network administrators and users alike.
Topics covered in "Web Caching" include:
* Designing an effective cache solution
* Configuring web browsers to use a cache
* Configuring an interception cache or proxy
* Monitoring and fine-tuning the performance of a cache
* Benchmarking cache products
