I was hoping to get some recommendations for a great software that would monitor network bandwidth.  We seem to be spiking and I can not find out where the issue is coming from.  We will pay for software, so keep that in mind.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

LAN or WAN?  If your referring to internet usage then that's best monitored at the gateway (router).
