I have a project that I want to throttle the speed on specify mime types, these mime types are as follows:

  • application/x-rar-compressed .zip
  • application/zip .rar

So my question is straight forward, is it possible to throttle specify mime types in Apache? and if this is the case how do I go about and make this happen.

This question came from our site for pro webmasters.


mod_bw allows limiting speed per Filetype:

<Virtualhost *>
BandwidthModule On
ForceBandWidthModule On
LargeFileLimit .avi 1 20000
LargeFileLimit .mpg 1 20000
Servername www.example.com

Unfortunately the main site doesnt seem to be maintained anymore, but depending on the distribution you're using it should be trivial to install it.
