Issue/Introduction

It works fine at lower speeds but if we configure for rates similar to 500Mbps, it doesn't works fines and the limit is over the configured.

Doing some tests, we found if we limit to 460Mbps, it works, but at 470Mbps, it can get up to 570Mbps.

Doing this tests accurately, seems the behavior changes between 466 & 467 Mbps, but it's just a supposition. 

For test, we limited the traffic generated by a source to 470, and here you can see how the limit is ignored.

And the Windows Monitor from source machine confirms this speed.

With the limit at 460Mbps, it looks well.
