Description Michael Fleming 2006-02-05 10:55:45 UTC
Spec Name or Url:
SRPM Name or Url:

mod_cband is an Apache 2 module provided to solve the problem of limiting
virtualhosts bandwidth usage. When the configured virtualhost's transfer limit
is exceeded, mod_cband will redirect all further requests to a location
specified in the configuration file.

Comment 1 Michael Fleming 2006-03-05 09:06:11 UTC
Ping - anyone want to review this?

I'd have thought *someone* was interested in a vhost bandwidth management package. 
Any takers?

*sound of crickets*


Comment 2 Aurelien Bompard 2006-03-05 10:59:38 UTC
Needs work:
* Source mod-cband- is different from upstream (wiki: QAChecklist item 2)
* I think you should install an example config file into
/etc/httpd/conf.d/mod-cband.conf (and keep the three examples in doc)

Damnit, the upstream updated the tarball without incrementing the release. I
hate that. Inspected differences (mostly int -> unsigned int changes) and used
that in the above SRPM.

Example config file added (mostly comments, borrowed some simple examples from
the website) and installed in Apache's conf.d as mod_cband.conf (to keep parity
with the package name.)

Comment 4 Aurelien Bompard 2006-03-12 22:09:06 UTC
* /etc/httpd/conf.d/mod_cband.conf should be set as %config(noreplace)
* cband-status access should be limited to localhost. You can add this to the
conf file :
Order Deny,Allow
Deny from all
Allow from

Comment 5 Michael Fleming 2006-03-16 11:04:42 UTC
(Spec in the same place)

Above suggestions implemented.

Comment 6 Aurelien Bompard 2006-03-16 13:23:25 UTC
Review for release 3:
* RPM name is OK
* Source mod-cband- is the same as upstream
* This is the latest version
* Builds fine in mock
* File list looks OK
* Works fine
