I have a server running Windows Server 2008 R2 and I would like to know how well it handles a certain load.

Is there any built in way of telling the server to monitor performance for a specific period and then produce some sort of report conveying the load on CPU, ram, disk etc.

Seems like a pretty straight forward request; check out the performance monitor built into server 2008

Opmanager is free for up to 10 devices and works well with 2008 R2 performance monitoring.
