What is Daily Maintenance?
Daily maintenance is a series of stored procedures that are automatically executed every day during non-peak hours (Usually around 2 am). This gives your system the chance to refresh and update information based on different sets of criteria.
*Note* Daily maintenance steps can vary from database to database. Depending on options you may have requested or added to your system, there may be additional related daily maintenance steps that run.
