comment OpenVPN certificate OR plugin-auth-pam authentication
I've just had the same issue. I can't see a way to do this. The more I looked into it the better option (for me) was to run two instances on the same box. I ended up answering my own question serverfault.com/questions/618364/…

comment How to use PAM to limit failed login attempts by IP?
Yes, as you say layers are good. - I've already hardened the server at the application level (ssh is unlikely to be breached [but never say never]). - I have a solution for locking users which are being targeted and all accessible usernames are obscure. - Another piece in the puzzle is to make the server "go dark" towards an IP (or IP block). This helps prevent (though by no means guarantees) user accounts being locked in DOS type attacks.

comment at daemon: What is the point of the “batch” queue?
Not that this invalidates anything you say, but the interval can be set to be lower when atd is started with the -b flag.

@DanielVérité I think pg_lsclusters is driven off /etc/postgresql unless there's something really non-vanilla about the install.

Looks like fail2ban might do what I need I'll check it out. I'd still prefer it if (just for once) someone on a forum would actually answer the question asked ;-)
