Is there a rule of thumb for the number of broadcast packets per second that can be tolerated before

Is there a rule of thumb for the number of broadcast packets per second that can be tolerated before most applications/NIC cards will start to experience problems? Here at DCX , there are some Rockwell machines that have NIC cards in them that will shut down when the broadcast level reaches 16 broadcasts per second.
I experienced a similar problem with Rockwell machines in the past. The problem can be caused by various factors, such as bursting capability, drivers, etc. If you can send me the details about the NIC cards installed and a brief about the network architecture, I might be able to help you in a better way.
