I can see, it will help me get some limiting so that one single user cannot take it all, but I hoped there was some feature that could enable to "share" the bandwidth in equal portions, with respect to the number of current active sessions/links/???, down to fixed minumum of, say 2 Mb/s, so that 50 users could share a 50 Mb/s band, without any single user using more than, in this case, 2 Mb/s.
But it's possible to get some way with storm-control, I guess, and it will probably be usefull anyway :)
Do you have mobile users in your network? I mean, do they connect from different places (switch ports)? If not, then there's no need to restrict bandwidth share by user, and Storm Control is enough, since each user is assigned a switch port.

To my knowledge, what you want to accomplish isn't possible on a 3560.
You can police at ingress, and if you use a policy map, you can police different "known" IPs.
What you could do, is police user ports ingress at some nomimal bandwidth, and if exceeded, mark the packets. Then on egress, you could direct those packets to an different egress queue with a lower bandwidth guarantee than the normal queue.
