This paper introduces MICP, a novel multiversion integrated cache replacement and prefetching algorithm designed for efficient cache and transaction management in hybrid data delivery networks. MICP takes into account the dynamically and sporadically changing cost/benefit ratios of cached and/or disseminated object versions by making cache replacement and prefetching decisions sensitive to the objects' access probabilities, their position in the broadcast cycle, and their update frequency.

Besides judiciously selecting replacement victims, MICP selectively prefetches popular object versions from the broadcast channel in order to further improve transaction response time. A simulation study compares MICP with one offline and two online cache replacement and prefetching algorithms. Performance results for the workloads and system settings considered demonstrate that MICP improves transaction throughput rates by about 18.9% compared to the best performing online algorithm and it performs only 40.8% worse than an adapted version of the offline algorithm P.
