Wow. Did you try Google? Or SQL Server help available on-line.

e.g. VIEW SERVER STATE is discussed here http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/sqlsecurity/thread/3c0182b2-dc24-47c8-bbb9-e36c911a3a45/

etc.

If you have specific problem with some from above commands, just ask a question here. But don't ask for SQL manual reproduction. It is contraproductive both for experts and for you. Sorry.
