Proxy caches are increasingly used around the world to reduce bandwidth requirements and alleviate delays associated with the World-Wide Web. In order to compare proxy cache performances, objective measurements must be made. In this paper, we define a space of proxy evaluation methodologies based on source of workload used and form of algorithm implementation. We then survey recent publications and show their locations within this space.
