About checking sql server alerts after-hours---Need help for advice

    General discussion

  • I am DBA.

    If sql server has any failure (sql jobs, network...), I will receive alerts by email.

    Now, I have to check my email every 15-20 minutes after work(nights, weekend and holiday) for possible email alerts. That's crazy. I almost cannot go anywhere and have to be ready for alerts anytime.

    It happens every day including every weekend and holiday.

    Any very experienced DBA has any comments? Do you have to check alerts every 15-20 minutes after hours everyday including every night, weekend and holiday until sleep?
