  1. Database integrity check.
  2. Statistics update.
  3. Database backups, full and with transaction logs (Backing up the transaction log truncates the log and allows you to reuse the space; otherwise, the transaction log will continually grow).
  4. Maintenance cleanup of backup files and maintenance plan report files.
