We are running many jobs in Prod. SQL Server 2008 (windows 2008 R2). Currently it is showing more than 90% CPU usage. Can you please tell me how to find out which SQL Server jobs are taking more CPU USAGE? And also I need to find out CPU usage is more due to SQL Server issue or Application issue. Please guide me. Thanks.

What process is "eating" your cpu?... what is the name that appears in the task manager?

What steps ( or SQL statements) you have in your job? You can see the current running queries and can determine which one is taking long time. Below scripts may be useful for you.

SELECT TOP 100
        (qs.total_logical_reads + qs.total_logical_writes) /qs.execution_count as [Avg IO],
        substring (qt.text,qs.statement_start_offset/2, 
         (case when qs.statement_end_offset = -1 
        then len(convert(nvarchar(max), qt.text)) * 2 
        else qs.statement_end_offset end -    qs.statement_start_offset)/2) 
        as query_text,
    qt.dbid,
    qt.objectid 
FROM sys.dm_exec_query_stats qs
cross apply sys.dm_exec_sql_text (qs.sql_handle) as qt
ORDER BY [Avg IO] DESC

You might want to investigate Confio's Ignite (or a similar tool) that shows the wait-states for the processes running on the database.  It will show you which queries are the worst offenders and what the nature of their Waits are.

We use that tool where I work and it has often pointed to poorly written queries that were eating PCU cycles and to missing indexes that contributed to the lostt of cycles.
