    When I did it my day was as follows: walk in, check dashboards to ensure they are displaying, check nightly check alerts, grab coffee or energy as long as nothing blew up from the night before, meeting, dig into the logs on the hunt for issues, lunch, meeting, develop more stuff to alert on, meeting, home. On days I find things all hands on deck to figure out if it is a real issue, get explanations and determine if management needs to be informed. Overall fairly routine, but a good many days of fighting fires. Since we didn't control the systems there is always a lot of back and forth on why something is an issue though a provider swears it isn't. You better know your stuff because if you cry wolf or miss something no one will ever listen to you again.
