Hi


It does depend on your supervisor and PFC level but if you have a PFC3 card then the 6500 provides something called User Based Rate Limiting. See attached link for more details

User based rate limiting is a bit of a misleading term actually as it is based on source and/or destination IP address so yes this should fit your requirements.
