Analyzing cacheability in the access network with HACkSAw


Web traffic is growing, and the need for accurate traces of HTTP traffic is therefore also rising, both for operators and researchers, as accurate HTTP traffic traces allow to analyse and characterize the traffic and the clients, and to analyse the performance of the network and the perceived quality of service for the final users. Since most ICN proposals also advocate for pervasive caching, it’s imperative to measure the cacheability of traffic to assess the impact and/or the potential benefits of such solutions. This demonstration will show a both a tool to collect HTTP traces that is both fast and accurate and that overcomes the limitations of existing tools, and a set of important statistics that can be computed in post processing, like aggregate/demultiplexed cacheability figures.
