Be aware that mod_cband has quite a horrible bug. This is a Debian bug report, but the same problem applies to FreeBSD. Be sure to read the entire bug, not just the original report. http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=418645 Regarding alternatives: there aren't. Bandwidth limiting is a long-standing feature of Apache that's missing, which is a huge disappointment. The best solution I've found on FreeBSD is to use pf(4) with ALTQ, and give each VirtualHost its own IP address, then rate-limit the IP address using pf(4). Yes, I realise this is impractical for sites which have many vhosts and use name-based virtualhosts.
