Maintenance activities for a productive machine


Although a BASIS support issue, does anybody have information regarding basic maintnance operations thas need to be performed when a machine is running in a productive situation? We have a hard drive that is rapidly filling up with information and it has become necessary to increase the disk space to fix it. I'm not so certain that the BASIS team responsible for this maintenance is monotoring and reacting completely correctly, and I would like to know myself what may be causing the problem.

Kind Regards,

    Hi Anthony,

    Cause of problem is Log Files, they come on daily/hourly/weekly basis and we dont archive them.

    So Please do these:

    1. Periodically archiving log files on a different drive from Server drives.

    2. Checking of background jobs, like delay settings, any error occured, exception.

    3. Set an email option if available while any thing goes wrong.

    4. Periodically checking about server heartbeat/performance.

    5. Deleting temporary files from drives.

    6. Deactivate unnessary objects.

    7. Check the data files for dummy/corrupt data.

    8. Avoid unnessay login to production server etc.

    Hope this will help. Rewards if helpful.
