Can anyone recommend any sort of daily SQL healthcheck script to check for common/known issues in your SQL infrastructure and databases. or what kind of parameters you put into your healthcheck scripts to keep an eye that things are running smoothly. I appreciate there are probably commercial tools do to the same.

can I ask what kind of things it checks for, and what versions of sql it is tested on, i.e. does it run on express?
