How do I create an alert in SQL Agent, to notify me once service broker message queue exceeds 300 messages? I am trying to get a notification to an operator in SQL Agent when this occurs.

based on the documentation here


you should use an alarm like this:

USE [msdb]
EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_add_alert @name=N'MyAlert', 
        @performance_condition=N'Broker Statistics|Forwarded Pending Msg Count||>|300',
