[Local Content Caching: An Investigation -- concluded on 2002/11]

This six month pilot-project will investigate what would be needed to create a system of local content caching, in which a content provider can notify a Local Content Cache of new (or updated or deleted) content. This content will then be collected by that Local Content Cache. The cache can then be used by a search engine, or any other content "user" such as an intelligent agent, for its own purposes. A proof of concept implementation of the software needed for a Content Provider, a Local Content Cache and Content Users, such as search engines and intelligent agents, will be part of this pilot-project.

LCC attempts to provide an alternative for scalability problems encountered by centralized search engines.
