Is traffic of broadcast packets controlled by bandwidth percentage on S series modular switches and is the interface shut down when the threshold is reached

Traffic cannot be controlled by bandwidth percentage on S series modular switches. However, you can use the following methods to control traffic.
In the interface view, run the storm-control { broadcast |multicast | unicast } min-rate min-rate-value max-rate max-rate-value command to specify the upper and lower thresholds of the rate. If min-rate-value is specified, the interface forwards only the packets of which the rate is smaller than the value of min-rate-value within the detection interval. If max-rate-value is specified, the interface is blocked or shut down when it receives packets of which the rate is larger than the value of max-rate-value.
Run the storm-control action { block | error-down } command in the interface view to set the action to shutdown.
