server health checks sql /iis

Good afternoon,

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated....

I have to perform some weekly health checks on Windows IIS and SQL servers.

Can someone detail what I should be checking on a weekly basis.

IIS logs seem to be building up whats the process or archiving these or can they just be deleted?

You monitor your SQL database and log files.  Your log files will grow but should get truncated once backup is performed.  If logs are not truncated then logs can grow  significantly potentially causing server to crash.  Rule of thumb is that your logs should not exceed your database (worst case scenario).
