We're running Apache (IBM HTTP Server 6..2.) before WebSphere 6. on linux. We're getting excessive traffic from the specific User-Agent from different IP addresses. We don't want to bar the consumer-Agent or IP addresses, but want to slow them lower a little.

Best scenario for all of us is always to use as they are Apache config choices to solve the issue.

Any ideas or suggestions could be appreciated.


No native way, but mod_evasive might be beneficial.
