Projects / mod_cband


mod_cband is an Apache 2 module that solves the problem of limiting the bandwidth usage of users, virtual hosts, and destinations. When the configured transfer limit is exceeded, mod_cband will redirect all further requests to a location specified in the configuration file. The module can also limit download speeds and maximal requests per second for virtualhosts, users, and remote clients.

            Re: Different HTTP response for the overflow page?
            Sorry, there is no ability to send a non-200 HTTP responses for the overflow page. But, I'll add this functionality to the list of features that will be implemented in :)

            Different HTTP response for the overflow page?
            Is there a way to get Apache to send a non-200 HTTP response for the overflow page? It doesn't seem right to me to send a response code of success when the page indicates failure.
