Abstract : This report presents how Pandora, our flexible monitoring platform, can be used to continuously measure the efficiency of a system of cooperating proxy caches. It circumvents many of the drawbacks of existing tools: Pandora integrates all stages involved in the evaluation process, it operates in real-time, it does not depend on specific cache software, and it can be adapted to any specific system configuration. We detail how this can be achieved using the flexibility offered by Pandora. We also present two experiments that illustrate the utilisation of these techniques: the first one evaluates the proxy cache deployed at INRIA Rocquencourt, the second one measures the efficiency of cooperating caches in an artificial environment. Finally, we describe how we plan to integrate these measurements inside an auto-adaptative Web proxy cache.
