I don't think you can go backwards and get this information if you were not collecting it.

To go forward, run Performance Monitor and set up a performance log to monitor. I have normally just set up the item to monitor and let it run for an hour or two and look at the graphs that it produced.

Normally just watching Task Manager will highlight what I need.

Run Resource Monitor (also in Admin Tools), let it run for an hour or two. It details the processes using Disk or CPU as you choose. But you need to select a point where you can monitor it.

Adding to John,
If you're not sure where it is  Viswanath,  nice name :)
open the task manager then Performance then below is the Resource monitor tab  this opens another window with the graphs but also the running tasks on the left you can put them side by side or just over each other
resource monitorThere is also a whole lot of settings that can be added to the task manager running processes,
at the top is the tabs put it on processes  go to the top VIEW,  last is select columns
tick memory private set and peak working set and description, right click on the high CPU and memory service. ok it and now look in the taskmanager
select columns 1taskmanager add columns

As John said, if you have not been collecting that information at the time, you will NOT be able to go back and analyse it now.

Don't know John still i am searching multiple sites to resolve this issue,i didn't get correct info regarding this issue.As our client asked us to know which process was consumed at that particular time(its 10 days before).As that server consumes 20-25% memory normally but it consumes 70-75% for 3 hours continuously and again it consuming memory normally after 3 hrs.

That is a lot of CPU and Memory consumption. You should be able to determine which process is doing this from the above tools.

Also check for viruses and malware. Do a full scan.

As John and i have already said, if the system in question was not recording CPU useage on a per process basis at the time of the incident (10 days back) then it is IMPOSSIBLE to reconstruct the per process now.

All you can do is to turn on recording for the future (be aware it may apply a load on the system) so that any FUTURE events can be analysed.
