Abstract: The discriminative multinomial Naïve Bayes classifier has been used in the field of web data classification. In this study, we attempt to improve the performance of the web cache replacement policies such as SIZE and GDSF by applying the machine learning technique for enhancing the performance of the web proxy server. In the first part of this paper supervised learning method discriminative multinomial Naïve Bayes (DMNB) classifier is used to train and classify the web log data and forecast the classes of web objects to be revisited or not. In the second part, a discriminative multinomial Naïve Bayes (DMNB) classifier is incorporated with traditional web proxy caching policies to form novel caching approaches known as DMNB-SIZE and DMNB-GDSF. This proposed method significantly improves the performances of SIZE and GDSF in terms of cache hit and byte hit ratio respectively.

Keywords: web caching; proxy server; cache replacement; classification; discriminative multinomial Naïve Bayes classifier.
