In last decade of computing, a growing popularity for semantic cache schemes has been observed. Nu merous techniques have been proposed for improved performance of semantic cache. Semantic cache is aimed towards reducing the network traffic load with the ab ility to address some queries without contacting the server. Semantic cache overcomes the limitat ions of previous page-caching and tuple-cache techniques. A prime concern of semantic cache includes query processing (query response-time) and

Semantic indexing sachems are segment based and hierarchical semantic indexing scheme. Both these sachems can improve the efficiency of query processing and cache management. In this paper, we have performed the evaluation of index schemes for Semantic Cache through the experimental study. Evaluations of these schemes are available in literature but experimental study is not available. Through this experiment, we have highlighted which technique is most suited in what kind of scenario.
