We use bandwidth shaping on *nix. works fine. currently the profile for
one site manages 500+ IP based up and downstream. Its one of our few
home-brew items. Of course, its all open source, so I don't need to
worry about support on this particular item.

See if it does some/all of what you need.
As for limiting/shaping, your 3640 may do what you need.

I'm at the point on my network now that I really need to control
unnecessary bandwidth usage. The biggest problem is the p2p users
with their excessive upload, and worms come in a close second.
My network is comprised of a Cisco 3640, Cisco C4840G L3 switch for
segmenting, and Dell 3324 managed switches. I have run ntop in the
past but I believe it only reports interactively through the web
interface. I wouldn't consider myself too far off from obtaining an
SNMP station/software like SNMPc.
I'm needing to implement a solution that will monitor, alert on, and
control this type of traffic. Either not pass it or rate-limit it.
I'm interested in solutions that have been implemented, home-grown,
tested, failed, etc.
Thanks in advance...
