Transparent Proxy Cache Server using Raspberry Pi


Objectives: The online traffic surge rates have rapid growth in the recent years. The rate has gone high, making the service providers unable to provide the quality of service they assure. The surging cannot be controlled and the only solution lays on the other side, so the providers are forced to choose another methodology of delivering the service in quality. Methods/ Statistical Analysis: In this paper the process of implementing an alternative is proposed. The work is concentrated on creating a Raspberry Pi to work as a transparent cache server with the smart phones enacting as the client. Findings: The issues of streaming videos are ending up being more critical to customers as they pay for over-the-top substance yet, still experience exceptionally less than impressive streams. To get a quick response and decrease access latency, utilizing a cache memory is prudent. A transparent proxy cache server wipes out numerous disadvantage of ordinary methodology. Transparent proxy cache server can be conveyed in two levels, one at switch level and another at router level. The attention is primarily on http result reserve which stores URLs of Previously accessed query results. These caches might be deployed in various machines, acting about as a proxy cache cluster, or exists together in the same machine. In this proposed framework we introduce a straight forward web store middle server, to upgrade the execution. The only work to be done regarding the promise of content availability is continuous monitoring of the cache. Application/Improvement: The proposed methodology can serve the right speed of content delivery by facilitating access of data from the cache while giving no hint that the data has been retrieved through IP-spoofing of the server which here is a small sized computer the Raspberry Pi.
