Resolution
For the BMX P34 20x0 CPUs, in the Network Configuration Bandwidth tab,  the Potential CPU Load feature allows the limiting of packets processed per second. The User can choose among three network environments for network polling:
isolated: lessens the impact of Ethernet communication on the scan by limiting the number of polled Ethernet messages to 700 per second
mastered: increases the maximum number of polled messages to 1400 per second
open: increases the maximum number of polled messages to 2100 per second

Be aware that an increase in the number of polled messages increases the load on the CPU module, which may be evident in a slower scan time.
