For HTTP, you can use the Web Filter for per-IP user quotas. Set the required categories to Monitor, Warning, or Authenticate and create a Category Usage Quota with type Traffic.

You'll likely need to create an additional policy for that Web Filter and put it in front, or the quota will be counted across all monitored categories.

I don't think it's possible to count uploads specifically, but you could deny HTTP post on the normal policy to force a move to the quota policy.
