Having a timer for lowering HTTP requests?

I'm using arachni and it performs great (thanks). But sometimes, it performs too great :)
It launches so many HTTP requests in parallel that web app is crashing.

Is there a parameter where I could set some values, such as:
-don't do more than 3 request /second or
-wait at least xxx milliseconds between each requests

I know that those values will increase the scan time a lot, but it's a tradeoff when web app are under load and/or badly coded

    First, I'd suggest lowering the HTTP request concurrency, if that doesn't do it then you can use the rate_limiter plugin
