SQL Server Maintenance Routines/Procedures

P: n/a
I recently learned that there is a stored procedure
sp_delete_backuphistory that cleans up the msdb for information related
to backup jobs. I tried the procedure in test and it ran 5 hours with
a target date of the first day in 2003. Obviously my databases have
been around a while. Up until now I thought the limit values entered
into the EM maintenance plan limited the history that SQL Server keep.
Obviously I was wrong.

I am wondering if there are any other maintenance procedures, other
than the standard optimization tasks, that I should be looking at
running on a regular basis to keep the master, msbd, and tempdb in good

Thanks in advance
