I have a 3560 running 12.(46)SE and According to the configuration guide, the ip accounting is not supported. Is there any version that supports this feature?

Unfortunately not. Looking at the 12.2(50)SE Command Reference ip accounting is not shown.

"ip accounting" isn't supported on any type of Cisco switch as the traffic flow is processed in hardware and packets processed by the "ip accounting" command are software-based flows.

For traffic profiling on a low-end switch as the 3560, you will need some 3rd party application as NetFlow is supported on Cat4500 and onward.
