Thanks for all the replys and I have been checking out all your 
suggestions. I guess though I still have not found exactly what I am 
looking for.  The client I have want's to become an ISP and needs tools 
to monitor bandwidth usage, as well as set how much bandwidth each of 
their clients gets for example 1.5Mbs.  Also if they get close to the 
download limite it needs to be able to email them say their limit it 
10Gig  / month.  I guess what I really need is an ISP tool kit.

Something I have found is www.PowerNOC.net
