It doesn't limit the number of connections, just respond 503 to the
exceeding ones. If you have a massive flodd, you will still need
processes to answer 503.
The standard usage would be to queue the connection as in the standard
backlog of apache.
This solution sucks ! (my 2 eurocents)
With mod_trottle, you can slow down individual vhost as well as
individual client IP, so they get slower the html and therefor request
slower the img inside your page (assuming your not totally slashdotted).
The other solution would be an reverse proxy in front, balancing the
http connection to multiple apache instances.
