    Instead of a cronjob which runs once per day I'd like that the option to use mod_cband becomes implemented.

    It can easily limit both suspensions and traffic-throttling actively.
    Currently I'm adding the rules to throttle with apache directives manually.


    <IfModule mod_cband.c>
    CBandLimit 20G
    CBandScoreboard /var/run/
    CBandPeriod 30D
    # 100kb/s, 10 request/s, max 5 connections
    #CBandSpeed 100kb 10 5
    # 10kb/s, 3 request/s -> speed limit for any remote client, max 5 connections
    #CBandRemoteSpeed 10kb/s 3 5

    Would be nice if it was possible to store the values from SQL for CBandLimit and so forth.

    Is there any luck that this is implemented??

    No, this isn't implemented, and unfortunately the mod_cband project seems to be dead... :(
