Measuring burst over time

I'm a student at KHK Geel (Belgium) and i'm doing an internship at a small IT company. At the moment I have to work out a solution in a QoS-based datacenter. I wanted to ask if it's possible to measure if somebody is bursting over his capacity during a certain amount of time. Our clients must have a possibility to burst over a certain period of time, but after a specified time that possibility must be denied.

Example: Client A can burst 4 hours/day, if he exceeds this traffic will be dropped. Is this possible? Thx.

i dont think thats possible. Cisco doesnt measure the time a flow bursts. You might find other tools to do it.

but id be happy if someone can contradict me here..
