    Hi Devi,

    A good place to start would be the "Troubleshooting Performance Problems in SQL Server 2008" White Paper:…/dd672789.aspx  Talks about all the various tools and techniques, including:

    SQL Server Profiler

    System Monitor

    Dynamic management views

    SQL Server Extended Events and the data collector

    Best Regards,
