I missed it, likely because of the other thread. Storage, tablespace usage and filesystem usage. App server - availability, filesystem usage. Application - availability, failed jobs, failed logins. Standby databases - log shipping progress, log application progress. So pretty much things that you don't want to discover at a critical moment. I also tend to think from the app down not the db up.
