Loadrunner cannot monitor, but the component in Loadrunner namely controller helps ur query.

You need to have proper licenses for monitoring the servers be it either web, app or db server.

Default u can monitor windows resources u do not need to have any license for this. If perfmon is available in your workstation. This feature in controller calls the perfmon dll and counters can be added to monitor the behavior of the whatever windows workstation that is needed.

Anyway go through the manual.

Monitor system bottlenecks during a test run and capture and display the performance data from every server or component

With Loadrunner, we can see the response of the system, CPU utilization while it is being used by multiple users and subjected to stress.

We can monitoring the performance of the application under test.
While examing the application and working on the script, we have to check the bottleneck and examine the various graphs(throughput, response time of the server on load and many more)

Most of the time we check at what condition is our application breaks.....on load
Like with increasing the  number of user, load on the server increases and at a stage it just breaks up. This is what the bottleneck of the system.

well ,You can monitor the graphs in the controller component of LoadRunner, there is hits /sec graph ,transaction/sec graph,response time graph etc. basically all of 'em gives you the same results .which is how much load  an application can handle for a specfied time period . but there is this window resource graph where you can add the measurements by right clicking on the windows resource graph, which will then lets you add the counters like the processor time,user time ,memory usage,idle time etc ,there are so many more performance objects that you can select and add counters based on the script requirements.
