   I used mod_dosevasive which isn't packaged, but was very simple
 to setup and found it very useful.

  Yes.  I haven't measured the memory/cpu usage explicitly but I've not
 noticed any significant slowdown with using it.

  (Right now I've got it upon a virtual host setup with Apache 2.x and
 my rules file is contains about 200 non-comment lines.)

  Of course it will depend upon what you do in the rules how well it
 will perform for you, both in terms of actual security and in performance.
