 A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
 directories. This draft is a work item of the HyperText Transfer Protocol 
 Working Group of the IETF.                                                

       Title     : Simple Hit-Metering for HTTP Preliminary Draft          
       Author(s) : J. Mogul, P. Leach
       Filename  : draft-ietf-http-hit-metering-00.txt
       Pages     : 33
       Date      : 01/23/1997

This draft proposes a simple extension to HTTP, using a new ``Meter'' 
header, to permit a limited form of demographic information (colloquially 
called ``hit-counts'') to be reported by caches to origin servers, in a 
more efficient manner than the ``cache-busting'' techniques currently used.
It also permits an origin server to control the number of times a cache 
uses a cached response, and outlines a technique that origin servers can 
use to capture referral information without ``cache-busting.''

Internet-Drafts are also available by mail.	
Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-http-hit-metering-00.txt".
NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
      MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
      feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
      command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
      a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
      exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
      "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split
      up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
      how to manipulate these messages.

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader 
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
of the Internet-Draft.
