Daily monitoring tasks

It is easy to become complacent your system runs smoothly. Unless you set up a routine of daily tasks, you might put system monitoring at the bottom of your list of priorities. Your database or system might slip into a problematic state when you least expect it. Establishing and executing a simple set of daily tasks can prevent problems.
The sections that follow describe the resources you should monitor on a daily basis.
* Monitoring the database log file
* Monitoring area fill
* Monitoring buffer hit rate
* Monitoring buffers flushed at checkpoint
* Monitoring system resources (disks, memory, and CPU)
