We colocate and host dedicated servers. I need to find a module for
apache 1.3.x that will limit the overall bandwidth for that server. I
need to cut the available bandwidth of a site to 128Kbps.
The modules that I have found (i.e. mod_throttle, mod_bandwidth,
etc.) seam to limit the bandwidth a particular user has access to. I
have tried using this and then limiting the number of requests
accepted. While this does limit the bandwidth it also drops requests.
Am I using these modules incorectly or is there another way to limit
the bandwidth available to the server? I would be fine with limiting
the bandwidth of the box entirely. The only thing running on it is
apache, but it needs to get cut down somehow.
