Limit the number of simultaneous connectios that an athenticated user can do in Apache 1.3.29


Hi all!

I have a server with apache 1.3.29 and I would like to limit the number of concurrent conections that an authenticated user can do simultaneously (a logged in member) to prevent the overhead of download managers placing i.e. 20 connections per download file.

So let's say I would like to limit the maximum number of concurrent connections to 4 per user. How can this be done?

Thanks in advance!!

Hi Demienx,

You may want to take a look at mod_throttle (http://www.snert.com/Software/mod_throttle/), which should be able to do what you are looking at.

Another options would bw bwshare : http://www.topology.org/src/bwshare/README.html

I would personally would opt for mod_throttle.

For other apache modules : http://modules.apache.org/

Cheers.
