Is there something that I can use to set rules for Apache to throttle temporarily or ignore any IP address that makes X number of requests per second?
It would be great if there is an Apache module for this. I had a look at
mod_limitipconn but it seems they base things on bandwidth which is very hard for me to determine bandwidth in terms of number of requests per IP.
I would be happy to use something external to Apache that will work on a standard Linux server (Fedora or CentOS).
