Every site should have two "auto-log-dump" tasks for each database.
First, should be an alert set on the 1105 error: syslogs is full. It should do a dump tran with no_truncate.
The second is an auto dump that tests to see if a log is over X percent full and if so, DUMP TRAN.
The second case can be accomplished with a perfmon alert using SQLALRTR but that means someone has to run perfmon. This script simply runs DBCC SQLPERF(logspace) to a table and then reads the table for any DB's with logs over X percent full. If so, it dumps the T-log.
