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.
