Preventing DOS?

Hello -

I'm looking at ways to prevent / mitigate DOS attacks, hopefully at
the nginx level (using it as a reverse proxy).  I see the limit zone
module - is this sufficient?  What are some reasonable values for
max_clients_per_ip?  Is there anything similar to apache's mod_evasive
module?  Or other suggested mechanisms?
