Help configuring policy to police or shaper for high amount of pss in data plane


I am having an issue with some applications (Commvault backup and Tenable security scanning) generating high amount of packets per second (15kpps - 45kpps), which are causing some devices (FW's) connected to the Nexus switch to become overwhelmed. I need help configuring a policy to police/shape traffic based on pps instead of bps.  Most of the documentation out there is geared to policing based on bps.  Unfortunately, the amount of bps is usually very low with no impact to network.   Alternately, I can make some modification to the network topology to use an ASR1006 router instead of the Nexus switch if there is an away of doing this on an ASR1006.
