You set a limit on the amount of apache instances that can be run

Does this person come in on the same ip address/domain name all the time ? If so ban the domain
from accessing your apache server by using the allow,deny feature on your <Directory />
entry.

Subject: Apache 2.x and limiting request volume


Apache Gurus,

What is the best way to limit abusive requests to an Apache 2.x server? 
 For example, some jerk decides to run a script that accesses a CGI on 
your site 100 times every 5 seconds.  How can you configure Apache to 
limit or deny these abusive requests?  Are the RLimitCPU and related 
directives helpful here?  What about mod_throttle or the like?  If so, 
is there a 2.x version?

Thanks,
Robert
