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.

Release Notes: Some memory leaks in scoreboard read/write operations and some HTML 4.0 Strict warnings were fixed. A truncf workaround for Solaris was added.
Release Notes: In the previous version of the module, the bandwidth speed limited by CBandExceededSpeed directive wasn't set to the normal value after a refresh period. This bug has been fixed.
Release Notes: This release fixes memory leaks in mod_cband's output filter and adds a truncf() definition for OpenBSD. It has been tested with high bandwidth and big files (over 3GB).
Release Notes: A segmentation fault when cband-status is refreshing has been fixed. This version adds a 'truncf' definition for FreeBSD, more documentation in the package, a better download speed approximator, and management of the list of remote hosts.
Release Notes: Thread-safety functions have been added. Many stress tests and various code improvements have been made for performance and security reasons.
