In this section, we have evaluated the performance of the Beehive replication framework for different scenarios in the context of DNS. Our evaluation indicates that Beehive achieves O(1) lookup performance with low storage and bandwidth overhead. In particular, it outperforms passive caching in terms of average latency, storage requirements, network load and bandwidth consumption. Beehive continuously monitors the popularity of the objects and the parameter of the query distribution, and quickly adapts its performance to changing conditions. 2004-02-11
