It got removed because the throttle module no longer relies on the 
number of pages served.  Instead, it looks at the number of concurrent 
anonymous users and/or the number of concurrent authenticated users. 
This simplified both the code and the configuration a great deal.  If 
you still want such block, create a PHP block that queries the 
'sessions' table.  It is easy enough.
