    I'm currently running the SUSE 9.3 Perfect Setup.
    Everything has been running fine for quite a while now. But I'm curious as to what I should be doing on a regular basis to keep this system running efficiently.

    I have searched the forums, but have not found any information that covers the subject of "regular maintenance". Would it be possible for one of the "Perfect" Gurus to write a document that covers this information?

    Some of the questions I have:
    What logs should I be checking regularly?
    What should look for in these logs?
    Should I be deleting or trimming down any files periodically? If so, which files and how often?
    What other actions should I be taking to keep my system(s) running efficiently?

    Thanks in advance!

    All logs in the /var/log directory.

    Errors/warnings/unusual things.

    Log files are rotated automatically. If you use ISPConfig and have users that are over quota, you might want to delete old log files in the logs directories (e.g. /srv/www/web1/logs, etc.).
    Install the latest security updates with yast.
