Can someone please give info about the required mod_evasive settings

I have

DOSHashTableSize 3097
DOSPageCount 2
DOSSiteCount 300
DOSPageInterval 1
DOSSiteInterval 1
DOSBlockingPeriod 10

I am concerned about DOSSiteCount 300, we are hit pretty hard right now and trying to mitigate the attack

Screenshot by Lightshot

in readme file for DOSSiteCount says This is the threshhold for the total number of requests for any object by
# the same client on the same listener per site interval

what is considered an object here?

image , href , css/js file or ?

On our homepage we have 11 images , 1 css , 1 js file and over 118 links ( href )

what should we set this setting at ?
