Yes. See Server Port Access in the documentation.

Time banking is a non-recurring time that user can accumulatively
login. Each session time is decremented from the user's total time
alloed, and then they are rejected. Time banking is per user, not
per NAS or port.

Depends on the NAS. Accounts is logged into the Calls table, and
may include Acct-Input-Octets and Acct-Output-Octets (which is
bytes in from the user, and bytes out to the user).
