Earlier this week I searched for Apache 1 bandwidth quotas and came up
with mod_throttle:


(My brother's website, which I host on a tummy.com virtual server, was
linked from a popular Dutch website a month ago. In the span of a few
hours, my upstream quota was gone.)

It provides the ability to set various types of quotas for transfer
data per unit time. I have it set up to cut off an Apache virtual
server's transfers when the quota is exceeded. I haven't been
slashdotted in the past several days, but it seems to be working well.
