Can anyone assist with putting together a top level checklist of best practice “performance management controls” that should be followed for effective performance management of business critical database servers?

I.e. a list that our audit/risk teams should compare to (( “what should be being done, to what is being done”))  verify what is happening on these systems, to ensure for effective performance management.

Any sort of top 10 controls checklist would be useful. I can’t find anything via Google.
If you have had experience in network and systems management before, especially from “availability perspectives”, what would good performance management look like, what would you look for, what can typically be improved, what would poor performance management look like?

I think you need to build your own "10 most critical factors" checklist depending on your speciffic environment and there are many articles/tools to help you uinderstand what is needed to keep a SQL server in Windows environment to operate properly. Please see article below and try your own search for "monitoring SQL pesformance" in google:

Some usefool tools that can help you monitoring SQL performance - I always recommend on the top to use SQL own Performance Dashboard Reports:
