Our Window 2003 Terminal server, it sometimes goes up to 100% CPU and we need to reboot it ? Any idea how isolate the problem ?

Under Window 2003 R2 32 bit, will there be any benefit to increase the memory for increasing number of users to access ? (assume CPU and disk IO are not a issue).

Q1 : you need to have a monitoring system in-place which can trigger an email or notification when CPU goes above 80-90% so that you can login to that server and check what process is hitting CPU through task manager. there is no way that you can pull a historic data of cpu utilization.
Q2: It depends on the application and usage of that server but if CPU and disk have no issues then you can increase RAM for increased users but in this case also if memory utilization is going above normal thresholds (80-85%) frequently you can definitely add RAM otherwise there is no need unless existing RAM is fully utilized.

How can we tell which process kill the CPU ?

Where values can I tell that CPU, memory or IO is enough or not ?
