mod_slotlimit module questions
I downloaded the source and compiled it. When I read Readme It's
little confusing to me. My questions are:

AvailableSlotsPercent - does it mean that upto 13 LimitSite can be allocated?
LimitSite - does it mean that the site running within the apache
itself or the external site trying to access apache server?
ClientIpLimit - What's the difference between LimitSiteConnections vs

Below is the output from readme:

<IfModule mod_slotlimit.c>

Setting it to 0 dynamic slot allocation algorithm will be deactivated.

Setting this directive to On, mod_slotlimit will overwrite vhost hostname
