And what kinds of parameters you check for in your health scripts? available space is a common one, but I was intrgued what else you build into your scripts? And whether you could share any in house or openly downloadable scripts?

Fairly exhaustive detail and output to Text file as noted in the "Syntax". Also outputs in a table format for all DC's in the Forest

DCDiag /Test:DNS /e /v >DcdiagDNS.txt

we have HP hardware so use HP SIM to monitor basic things like diskspace.
A lot of this depends on the application

for examples
Exchange - free space at an application level with in the Exchange databases - there are plent of free scripts to do this, this also in turn runs clean up scripts to remove old files
AD - user account checks for not logged in for 30 days, dcdiag, replication monitor

the main thing to check across all servers is clean event logs and its not easy to do this via script, Using MS Systems Centre or similar central event log monitoring tools would do this and alert on warnings, errors etc
