Once again, Danni's Hard Drive has implemented these features in apache
I sent in a patch to 1.3.20 but nobody has appeared to be interested in it.
I feel like this is the SGI 10x patch deal all over again.  Would anyone
to look at the patch if I sent it in again?

As you point out, that level of granularity isn't available with general
purpose traffic shaping tools.

You may want to look at the Zeus server to understand the features that
product-worthy as one example. It appears that they've only implemented
at the virtual server level.

As you're probably aware, thttpd also provides flexible bandwidth

Linux, and I am aware of various kernel-level controls for traffic
shaping, etc, however if you can tell me how to enforce different
bandwidth limits for different name-based vhosts, different directories,
etc, then I'm all ears, but I suspect I can also give you pretty good
reasons why even if such decisions could somehow be done at the OS
level, they really shouldn't be.
