A runbook contains step-by-step instructions, clear enough for an engineer on call to handle an issue without needing to look up additional information. Hostnames, file names, escalation criteria -- if it's needed to perform a task, it's included in the procedure. Every major area of the system can have a runbook, with tasks as diverse as how to failover a storage volume to how to handle a power outage.
