    retrieving content from the cache elements in the local cache to respond to the data request;

    wherein, a changing parameter in the identifier is identified to indicate cache defeat when responses corresponding to multiple data requests are the same even when the multiple data requests used identifiers with the changing parameter being different for each of the multiple data requests.
