Only if configurable. I have perl scripts that are allowed to get very big
to keep things moving quickly. I don't need/want limits.


Has anyone looked at using the in-memory scoreboard to limit the number of
simultaneous CGI requests?
There's an Apache 1.0 module for doing this but it does things using files
which reduces performance. A MaxCgiClients directive would be wonderfully
useful (<dirctory>/<location> configurable of course  ;-)
