I don't think caching will help - the caching surely shouldn't cache
pages with query parameters, and these are the ones that cause the load.

As for mod_cband - I haven't tried it, but I don't think a bandwidth
limit is what I want to specify. I'm rather after a requests rate
(mod_bw has it, but I don't know whether to trust it). AFAICT, mod_cband
does not support limiting the number of requests per time period.
