Traffic limiting

I have this one very popular site configured go thru nginx reverse proxy
and its so popular that it takes lots of bandwidth and we are now need to
limit traffic.

It seems there is limit modules in nginx but examples are per user limit,
but that does not help us because thats the problem here, several hundred
thousands users are requesting one particular xml file. So i think
limiting per user limit does not limit bandwidth at all, i need to limit
request to that one file per all users. So any help can i use nginx limit
zone or req_limit_zone in this case, is there some $session_variable what
i can use here instead of binary_remote_address?
