Is there any reason why you think that davfs2 opens more than 10 connections? You may use Wireshark to check.

davfs2 is single threaded and only uses one connection. HTTP-traffic is done by the neon library. As far as I can see neon will only open a new connection after closing the old one. Only if you allow redirects then davfs2 might open two connections at the same time.

Is it possible to limit concurrent connection to the upstream server?

My provider limit concurrent connections to 10 so i'm facing errors in my application (Nextcloud using a davfs2 mount as primary storage) and I believe this is the cause (concurrent connections made by davfs2 is >10).
