Cisco Rate-limiting

rate-limit {input | output} [dscp dscp-value] [access-group [rate-limit] acl-index] bps burst-normal burst-max conform-action conform-action exceed-action exceed-action

Is there are way in cisco ios to make a rate-limit that allows 30megs of traffic to flow at line speed then limit the average to 512kbs?

OK, that's different. I assumed that since it was posted in the PIX Firewall zone that it was a PIX.
I only know of ways to limit the rate of any given traffic flow based on access-lists or based on time using time-based acls. I don't know of any technique to only apply the rate limits after so much aggregate traffic has passed.
You might be able to use a tcl script to evaluate total packet throughput on a given interface, recognize 30Mb, apply the acl, clear the counters, and then wait for another trigger to remove the restriction once again.
