Managing Alerts

The SQL Server Agent can monitor events that occur on the database server and automatically respond to these events with alerts. Alerts can be fired based on SQL Server events, performance conditions, and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) events. After an alert is fired, the SQL Server Agent can respond by notifying an operator or executing a job. This provides a proactive means for identifying and reacting to critical conditions on a database server.
