I am not aware of a tool that tracks all those stats at once. You could probably acomplish it using wire shark on each of the respective machines. I guess I would ask why do you want to know, probably you have a slow site? Some things you can do to help that are

  1. Turn on Caching
  2. Use y-Slow in firefox to see what the size of your page is and why it is rendering slow. This will give you the time it takes the browser to load and how long it takes to get the info from the WFE
  3. verify that you have your SQL Server setup according to best practices this best practice doc says it is for 2007 but al most all still applys to 2010.

Great question. You should have a look at SQL Profiler, which provides all the statistics you need, with the exception of browser related ones. Have a look at this Google search for details.

Another option is to track your SQL Server Performance Counters.

Idera recently posted some info about tuning your database for SQL Usage as well.

We had a debate about linking to Google Search results in SO long back :-) – Shoban Apr 27 '11 at 6:23
I don't think I was part of that discussion so please point me to any sources maintained by stack exchange / moderators of this particular site. – Muhimbi Apr 27 '11 at 6:44
