Abstract
A flow cache is a fundamental building block for
flow-based traffic processing. Its efficiency is critical for the
overall performance of a number of networked devices and
systems. However, if not properly managed, the flow cache can be
easily filled up and rendered ineffective by traffic patterns such
as flooding attacks and scanning activities which, unfortunately,
commonly occur in the Internet.
In this paper, we show that popular cache replacement policies
such as LRU cause the flow caches to evict the so called heavyhitter
flows during flooding attacks. To address this shortcoming,
we build upon our recent work and construct a replacement
policy that is more resilient to floods and yet performs similarly
to other policies under common network traffic conditions.
