We have a SQL 2008 Server that will max out the processor several times per day.  Task Manager clearly shows that SQL server is the program using all of the resources but we do not know exactly which DB, Job or Querry inside SQL is actually the culprit and our SQL knowledge is fairly basic.

How can we determine the function of our SQL server is actually consuming all of the CPU at different times throughout the day?
