Nice, can I get a copy too ;) (just for curiosity, I use redundant
freeradius servers)

That's normal, since volume limits and speed limits aren't implemented
at this point

Volume limits in theory should be easy to implement but this needs
changes in the radius accounting subsystem too which I first want to
write out on paper to have a coding diagram before I start doing this.
Furthermore, 1.21 is just released with the new framework, lets see if
it can hold it out... (which it should but every situation differs...)

At this moment you can't, only (local/radius)
session-timeout/idle-timeout and session-terminate-time (WISPr) are
supported atm

If people really want volume limits for there business, they always can
donate some money to sponsor the work to fasten up the development ;)
