Techniques for Efficiently Serving and Caching Dynamic Web Content

This chapter presents an overview of techniques for efficiently serving and caching dynamic web data. We describe techniques for invoking server programs and architectures for serving dynamic web content. Caching is crucially important for improving the performance of Web sites generating significant dynamic data. We discuss techniques for caching dynamic Web data consistently. Fragment-based web publication and can significantly improve performance and increase the cacheability of dynamic web data. These techniques assume the existence of mechanisms for creating fragments. We discuss techniques for automatically detecting fragments in web pages.

It is often desirable to provide content with quality-of-service (QoS) guarantees. We examine techniques for providing QoS under overload conditions. We also look at techniques for providing differentiated QoS.
