Dynamic firewall based on bandwidth usage ? Oct 08 2006 06:44PM

Hello,
I have a common problem but cannot find a solution.

My setup :
all servers are Redhat Enterprise 4
CISCO PIX in front on a HTTP load Balancer/failover (called a director
in the L.V.S. jargon) that sends requests to 4 web servers (cluster
setup based on Linux Virtual Server include in redhat cluster suite).

Now my prob :-)

From time to time users download our site and block all http connexion,
and worst, use all our bandwidth. So I have to block (or redirect) those
network abusers after a download limit (for ex : 1Gb per day) for lets
say 1day.

Because of the director, I cannot use the apache2 mod_cband.

My first though is to look at the iptables on the director but I cannot
find any information about that kind of setup.

Do you know if it is possible using build in linux tools(iptables ?).

If not, do you know some hardware appliance that could do that ?

Thanks !
