I did it myself under influences of squid2mysql script that was popular a decade ago and yes, here is the code:
It has some time of reaction, several minutes so hard to say how much it's of a real time but as of the first public release v0.1 it did those exact things with both transparent squid on a LAN and ipacctd for FreeBSD, too: there were monthly limits per user, users were disconected ( actually they had access only to pop3, smtp and icq ports from the outside WAN ) upon the limit was reached, and were notified by email on reaching 90 or 100 percents of their limit.
ISPs dramatically dropped their prices and charging models since then so the code isn't yet known to be used with squid anymore but I use it with ipacctd for myself and with nginx for demo.
