Throttling policy is ignored for BITS traffic in Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2

This article describes an issue in which the throttling policy is ignored for Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) traffic in Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2. A hotfix is available to fix this issue. Before you install this hotfix, see the Prerequisites section.

Symptoms

Assume that you use BITS to deploy updates. You set the throttling policy in BITS to restrict the network bandwidth. For multi-range transfers of files that are greater than 4 gigabytes (GB), BITS exceeds the throttling limit and consumes all network bandwidth.

Cause

This issue occurs because BITS miscalculates the next scheduled time at which it should check the transfer rate to impose the throttling. This causes the transfer to continue to be unbounded.
