Monitoring For Suspect Pages

John Martin shows us about dbo.suspect_pages:

dbo.suspect_pages is a table that resides in the MSDB database and is where SQL Server logs information about corrupt database pages (limited to 1,000 rows) that it encounters, not just when DBCC CHECKB is run but during normal querying of the database. So if you have a DML operation that accesses a corrupt page, it will be logged here, this means that you have a chance of identifying a corruption in your database outside of the normal DBCC CHECKDB routine.

This is a nice tool we can use to check for corruption.
