Limiting connections per ip or virtual host

We are using Apache 2.2.6 and I am currently looking at some solution that will let me limit connections per ip or virtual host. Also the requirement is to be able to change this value dynamically with some customized messaging.

When you say "per ip", do you mean per client IP, or per host IP? Check out mod_vhost_limit.

This module is static and changes to configuration require apache restart. Is there some module that can be changed dynamically that doesn't require apache restart
