Hello,
Randomly  my Windows server 2008 R2  standard is not responding to normal command with mouse , keyboard. sometimes applications also and it's difficult for me to understand what the root cause of this issue .
Is there any tools that can monitor the server status and than collect dump or logs when the issue occurr means applications not responding or freezing?

hard drive activity will do it.  Normally on servers the background processes take priority over the desktop

Have a look in the Eventlog (Application, System) and determine if anything special is logged during the times that you have the issue. Agree with ve3ofa: it's a server that gives priority to background processes.

If the computer is frozen then how can it collect anything? You could collect performance monitor logs and after it happens go into the logs and then see what had happened. but the collection of the logs creates more server overhead and disk activity. All you can do is collect the information wait for the event in question to happen and then go back and investigate. Perfmon is a built in tool. Same with the event viewers that are also built in.
