Make sure the following packages are installed:


Disckcheck will send you an email once an hour if you have a drive over
90% full.

Logwatch will send you an email everyday listing what it thinks are problem
or otherwise interesting entries in your logs.

Sysstat keeps a bunch of statistics on system performance.

I *think* logwatch & sysstat are installed by default (looking at a fresh
pre-2.0.2 release that I *think* I picked all the default settings). Diskcheck
is probably not installed by default. I think I'll change that for 2.0.2.
