The success of the World Wide Web has led to a steep increase in the user population and the amount of traffic on the Internet. Popular Web pages create “hot spots” of network load due to their great demand for bandwidth and increase the response time because of the overload on the Web servers. We propose the distribution of very popular and frequently changing Web documents using continuous multicast push. The benefits of CMP in the case of such documents are a very efficient use of network resources, a reduction of the load on the server, lower response times, and scalability for an increasing number of receivers. We present a quantitative evaluation of the continuous multicast push for a wide range of parameters
