This survey article revisits resource management problems arising in large networks. More specifically, we focus on two fundamental memory management problems. In the first part of this paper we study buffer management in network routers and switches. We present various online strategies and report on their competitiveness and experimentally observed performance. The second part of the survey addresses web caching where a limited reordering of requests is allowed. We present both online and offline strategies.
