The paper describes an interactive graphical user interface (GUI) that can be used for the modeling and analysis of Web proxy workloads. The WebTraff GUI has three main components. First, the WebTraff tool provides a visual front-end to ProWGen, a Web proxy workload generation tool developed in prior work (see Busari, M. and Williamson, C., Computer Networks, vol.38, no.6, p.779-94, 2002), which can be used for generating synthetic Web proxy workloads of arbitrary length, with user-specified statistical properties. Second, the WebTraff GUI provides tools for the analysis of Web proxy workload characteristics, including document size distribution, document popularity profile, and temporal locality properties. Third, the GUI provides a front-end to a simple Web proxy cache simulation program, which can be used in studies of Web proxy cache performance and cache filter effects.
