Bandwidth throttling (on a per ip/user basis)

Dear all,

does anybody have any experience throttling
the bandwith on a per ip/user basis with nginx?

Any pointers, ideas, etc. how to implement this
would be highly appreciated.

All the best,
-Armin

The only way to do it with nginx is to use request bandwidth
limits with connection number limits. See:

http://wiki.codemongers.com/NginxHttpCoreModule#limit_rate
http://wiki.codemongers.com/NginxHttpLimitZoneModule

This can’t effectively limit bandwidth for many small requests and
doesn’t allow flexible aggregate limits though. So it’s probably
better to use your firewall for bandwidth limiting instead.
