What (I'm guessing) you're looking for is typically called 'throttling'.  The Apache server does not have any throttling capabilities built into its core.  However, some addon modules will probably help you:

These two seem pretty well maintained...

This one does not seem as maintained...

Here's a perl program / module...

A search on google for 'apache throttle' or 'apache throttling' should probably get you some decent information on the subject.


Finally, if you can move away from Apache, the thttpd server has throttling capabilities built right in.  This is one of its most touted points.  The thttpd server is wicked fast too...

Hope this helps.
