I have a network monitoring system that allows me to monitor my clients networks as well as their SQL databases. I can monitor any performance counter for a SQL database. My questions is, what performance counters should I monitor?

I also need to know what would be considered good and bad levels for those counters. I assume there is a document somewhere with that information?
