Web Response Time and Proxy Caching
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 1998-03-01), TR-98-07
It is critical to understand WWW latency in order to design better HTTP protocols. In this paper we characterize Web response time and examine effects of proxy caching on response time. We show that at least a quarter of ...
Open Peer to Peer Technologies
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2002-09-01), TR-02-19
Peer-to-peer applications allow us to separate out the concepts of authoring information and publishing that same information. It allows for decentralized application design, something that is both an opportunity and a ...
Integration of Heterogeneous Digital Libraries with Semi-automatic Mapping and Browsing: From Formalization to Specification to Visualization
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2005), TR-05-04
In this paper, we formalize the digital library (DL) integration problem and propose an overall approach based on the 5S framework. We apply 5S to domain-specific (archaeological) DLs, illustrating our solutions for key ...
Information Storage and Retrieval of Composite Documents: A User Oriented Model of a Computer Message System
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 1985-08-01), TR-85-34
This paper outlines a new model of computer message systems based on a useroriented rather than a communications perspective. Most network users spend their time working with various types of 'composite documents' such as ...
