Abstract

Modern information retrieval systems use sophisticated techniques for efficiency and scalability purposes. Among the most frequent such techniques is the implementation of several levels of caching. The main goal of a cache is to speedup computation by exploiting frequent, recent or costly data used in the past. In this study we propose and evaluate a static cache that works simultaneously as list and intersection cache, offering a more efficient way of handling cache space. In addition, we propose effective strategies to select the term pairs that should populate the cache. Simulation using two datasets and a real query log reveal that the proposed approach improves overall performance in terms of total processing time, achieving savings of up to 40% in the best case.
