THESIS DEFENCE Bai Yu B.Eng, Computer Science, Zhejiang University, China, 2011 Monday, September 22 nd , 2014 11:00 a.m. TASC1 9204 West Title HASH BASED CACHING MECHANISM FOR WEB-OLAP Abstract In recent years, the advent of client-side data caching techniques has brought significant performance improvement in highly interactive web applications. In this thesis, we focus on the client-side data caching in the web-based OLAP system. Previous work or methods cannot handle arbitrary shapes of the cached data. Therefore, we propose a hash based caching mechanism that can solve this problem. Also, we come up with the idea of downloading the inflated sub-cubes in background. By combining this idea with our hash based caching mechanism, we can not only serve the users at the very first time, but also provide high performance for the subsequent cross-tab or drill-down operations by utilizing the cached inflated sub-cubes. Our result shows that this new method has great performance improvement compared with the previous method and when the size of the inflated sub-cubes is not so large, our mechanism also outperforms the no-cache one.
