SQL Server Maintenance Jobs

Hi,
I have new SQL server systems. I am looking for all kind of maintenance procedures one can add to make it work better or prevent any issues.

Things like
- Truncating log files every night
- Rotaing SQL server logs each night

Could someone with hands on Sql experience list them here?

Thanks

SQL Maintenance task I would perform every night:

FULL DB backup - all db's
T-log backups - all DB's - this should relese used T-Log space as well
REINDEX and update STATS all DB's

Weekly/Monthly
I would run a DBCC CHECKDB on all DB's

Hi,
Would you able to share any scripts for
- REINDEX and update STATS all DB's
- DBCC CHECKDB on all DB's
lcohanDatabase AnalystCommented:
Sure - please see code from http://sqlfool.com/2011/06/index-defrag-script-v4-1/ 
for the reindex and as far as DBCC CHECKDB goes that could be done in a SQL job one step at a time per database and the command is just like that:


DBCC CHECKDB (your_db_name_here)
