Good Morning / Afternoon / Evening (depending on where you are)

I'm going to be setting up a DBA Admin database to replace an old outdated one that contained very minimal logging and would like the shiny new one to collect all the useful information that is available to us (at the moment in 2005 but will soon be 2012) around database performance and statistics.

I've been searching quite a bit on this to get advice and best practice but either my Googlefu is failing or there is not much info out there on this.

In terms of what I would like help with is some info on:

- What is best practice
- What tables should it contain
- What scripts to run
- What jobs to set-up
- What tables should it contain
- Anything not contained in the above that I have missed and would be helpful knowing

Any scripts and examples of databases ect would be welcomed

Thanks all

Andy

http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/dba-repository-2010

Both sites inspired me to create my own DBA Repository. They're both very good.

Society has varying and conflicting interests; what is called objectivity is the disguise of one of these interests - that of neutrality. But neutrality is a fiction in an unneutral world. There are victims, there are executioners, and there are bystanders... and the 'objectivity' of the bystander calls for inaction while other heads fall.

Thank-You Abu, very interesting, I'l take a look through this.

I'm interested, do many people use this solution?

Of course I can't speak for anybody else, but from my experience it depends on the kind of DBA and the kind of company.
The larger the company is and/or the more experienced the DBA'er(s) is, the more likely it is there will be some kind of repository built. Sometimes this will be the same as the ones you can find on the internet, but most of the times this will be an adjusted version. Depending on your environment, most of the times the code you find on the internet is not exactly wat you want/need. So you end up changing and adding stuff to fit your needs.
In my previous job (large environment, >250 instances) there was a complete monitoring system built from scratch. They start building it in the year 2000 and up untill today the monitoring system is still being improved and expanded.
