Limit Concurrent CVS Checkout I/O

Hello,

I have a public cvs server running Debian Lenny. At certain times, the server is getting completely whacked by concurrent cvs checkouts. Is there a way to limit the number of concurrent cvs connections being served?

Thanks.

If you're using a CVS server, you can use iptables to rate limit the number of connections per minute to the cvspserver port (2401). Here's a link to an explanation of how to do this:

I am using both pserver with xinetd and ssh access. There are config options to limit connections in xinetd.conf, but how to limit the cvs processes started over ssh?
