You could use Wireshark to see where the packets are mostly coming from. You can also enable Port Mirroring with Wireshark to monitor ports on the switch to monitor network traffic.

DNS could be a problem, or could be switches or routers. I am using cacti to debug network information. MRTG/RTG/Cacti uses by default for tracking interface in/out bandwidth utilization
