Cache prefetching technology has become the mainstream data access optimization strategy in the data centers. However, the rapidly increasing of unstructured data generates massive pairwise access relationships, which can result in a heavy computational burden for the existing prefetching model and lead to severe degradation in the performance of data access. We propose cache-transaction-based data grouping model (CTDGM) to solve the problems described above by optimizing the feature

Second, we design a data chunking algorithm based on CTF and spatiotemporal locality to optimize the relationship calculation efficiency. Third, we propose CTDGM by constructing a relation graph that groups data into independent groups according to the strength of the data access relation. Based on the results of the experiment, compared with the state-of-the-art methods, our algorithm achieves an average increase in the cache hit rate of 12% on the MSR dataset with small cache size (0.001% of all the data), which in turn reduces the number of data I/O accesses by 50% when the cache size is less than 0.008% of all the data.
