Availability auditing

I have been searching sometime for some form of checklist for when it comes to availability of file servers. I.e. when an auditor wants to go in and check for security issues there are tools and checklists galore available to them, but an availability/performance audit – nothing really out there. So if there was say a top 10 checks to do on checking availability/performance (or continuity options if the server fails/struggles) of a standard 2003/2008 file server are there any tools or auditors checklists you could point us in the direction of, I’d also love to know perhaps the top 5 reasons why such servers performance degrades or they go down? That may fall in with what to check.

Slightly off topic, but in terms of an audit of a server, aside from security + performance/availability, what other areas should, in your opinion be included in a review?

Thanks thats more the audit process as opposed to technology/technical specifics on how to audit performance/availability of a 2003 server.

I cant see what security logging has got to availibility controls

Auditing and an audit/review arent the same thing
