Take it easy on me, this is my first blog post.
One of the challenges faced in anything computer related is they do so much it can be hard to know what is going and what is not.
A lot of companies have expensive monitoring solutions like Redgates Sql Server Monitor that provide an elegant solution.
Not every one has that kind of budget... or maybe you only monitor your big money instances?
This is where home brewed monitoring bridges the gap.
Over the next few posts I would like to share some of the home brewed time savers.

Update the specified places with your versions of the info an you will get an email every day from every instance you install it on telling you the state of your agent jobs and the out come of up to 100 runs in the last 24hours.

To be fully automatic from within SQL you must have:
Database mail already configured and a global profile set.  More on that in another post soon.
An edition of SQL that supports SQL agent, but then if you didn't you wouldn't want to know about agent jobs.

You will want to replace "<Insert your mail recipients here>" with either a ; separated list of recipients or a distribution list.
You will want to update any naming conventions for the email headers etc to match your environments.
What does it tell you when it runs?
*    The server and agent are up or you would not get email.
*    If there are failures on your server they will be at the top of the email.
*    A text file containing any related error messages is attached.

Have a look, have a try, let me know what you think.
