Is rate limiting by source IP address an acceptable to you?  If so,
then you could do it that way.  An untested example that should set
you out in search of the necessary doc:

  class-map match-all cm-src-specific
   match access-group name acl-src-specific
  interface Vlan99
   service-policy input sp-rate-limit
  policy-map sp-rate-limit
   class cm-src-specific
    police flow mask src-only 1000000 4000 conform-action transmit exceed-action drop
  ip access-list extended acl-src-specific
   permit ip any any
