Im trying to verify top talkers on a 4500 switch but ip accounting and netflow are not supported on it. Are there any other ways I can get that information?

Unfortunately it's very difficult without Netflow support. Depending on your supervisor you may be able to purchase a Netflow daughter card for it. Other than that you could perhaps SPAN a port and capture the traffic with wireshark for example to analyse it. Not ideal i know but Netflow is the accepted way to do this sort of thing on a 4500.
