Abstract: Content sharing is becoming popular application of internet; yet internet design has little consideration for content sharing; so to keep up with latest trend and to efficiently use internet for content sharing; a new network concept is proposed called Content centric networking (CCN). It is one of the capable frameworks which support caching and improve fast content delivery. CCN is designed in such a way that each router in a network has storage space for caching. This paper discusses different tools capable for evaluating performance of caching techniques; different routing strategies used by the simulator for monitoring different distinctive metrics; like communication overhead; file download time; hit ratio; hit distance.
