Can OpenLDAP (slapd) be protected from a runaway client process that

IIRC, slapd(8) will attempt to prevent a single connection to consume
more than half thread pool. Of course, client which consumes
half the thread pool for even short periods of time can adversely
affect service to other clients.
Beyond this, no other slapd(8) features come to mind.
what are you really trying to protect against?
