Re: data mining

With IP tables ( netfilter ) you can use do rate limiting. http://www.netfilter.org/documentation/HOWTO//packet-filtering-HOWTO-7.html#ss7.3

Just check out the 'limit' match extension.

What I'd like to see is 'views' support, as in BIND. Where you would able to state in an ACL "host on my network see these attributes, but all other hosts see only these".

throttling back service to "abusive" clients?  Has anyone privately added
code to implement such a concept?
