It is recommended that you promptly review and resolve all alerts to identify those of a significant or potentially critical nature. In addition, you should perform other tasks on a regular basis, depending on your environment. Many important problems do not cause alerts, but they still require periodic attention. The Microsoft® Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 Management Pack has views and reports that display data over time and present patterns that indicate problems. Review the views and reports to resolve issues before they generate alerts.

You should perform the daily, weekly, and monthly tasks as specified in this section, but adjust the frequency of these tasks to meet the needs of your particular environment.
