Typically it entails taking all of the servers offline, sometimes maybe running diagnostics on the equipment, upgrading failing hardware, installing new patches, and last but not least taking a vacuum and getting rid of all of the collected dust.

Maintenance could be a any one of these.

Sometimes maintenance only involves a quick reboot to cycle out any memory leaks or such that may have occurred during the week.

Could be a stress test, database consolidation, anything really.
