    I want to limit bandwidth per IP, per day on my web sites. Say 20G per IP, per 24H period should be more than plenty for 99% of my users. It's the 1% of users who want to site rip the site and download 100s of GBs worth of data in a single fly-by-night site rip that I am trying to block here.

    So far the only modules I have seen to accomplish this wont block single IPs, but rather block the vhost. I don't want to shut the site down after it reaches xx quota each day. That's just punishing the legit users. I want to only punish the leechers.

    Is this even possible?

    Hello :)

    You can submit a feature request for this functionality via:

    However, it's likely you are going to need to find a custom application or configuration that will block IP addressed based on their Apache bandwidth usage.

    Thank you.

    I think I have found a module that will do this, but I am not sure how to install it. It's an apache module called CBand.
