The evaluation of Web proxy performance can be complex. In this paper, we present the lessons and results of our implementation of a novel simultaneous proxy evaluation technique. In this architecture, we send the same requests to several proxies simultaneously and then measure their performance (e.g., response times). With this approach, we can test proxies using a live network with real content, and additionally be able to evaluate prefetching proxies.
