Limiters are assigned using firewall rules via the In/Out section under Advanced features. Bittorrent can be very hard to trace because the torrent clients these days use encryption and that can't be handled by a layer7 rule. You might be better off using an opposite approach where you elevate known traffic like web and mail, and all others can be limited or shaped.
