A file system support for streaming media caching

Hojung Cha, Jaehak Oh

Research output: Contribution to journalLetter

Abstract

This letter presents the implementation results of an application-level cache file system, MCFS, which is specifically designed to provide efficient caching and transmission mechanisms for streaming media. The file system is built on a virtual file disk which is constructed as a single large file on a general-purpose file system. MCFS suits the access requirement of continuous media caching and provides an efficient I/O mechanism for cache servers. The experimental results show that MCFS outperforms the comparison model and provides a consistent I/O bandwidth.
