Forgive me, I am not very proficient with SQL queries/statements. When I use the statement and test the Alert, it says "Invalid object name 'con_ag_database'.

What am I doing wrong?

You might have to fully qualify that object. Who is the schema owner of that object in your environment?

For example, you might have to specify ignite.con_ag_database if you aren't querying as the schema owner...

I am logged into the DB and don't see ignite.con_ag_database. The closest thing is ignite.CON_AG_SUM_13.

I know I need to update my DPA instance. Probably included in new release? Current version is 11.0.373.

That table should have been present in DPA 11.0 unless something happened during upgrade. The current version of DPA is 12.0 and we'll soon be releasing 12.1 (DPA 12.1 RC2 is currently in your portal).

You might try the following query which will give you the data for each database/replica:

SELECT 'DB: '+DB_NAME+', Replica: '+REPLICA_NAME AS db_and_replica, ISNULL(EST_DATA_LOSS , 0) AS estimated_data_loss

FROM ignite.CON_AG_DATABASE

If the tables are in the dbo schema vs ignite schema, just remove the "ignite." from the FROM clause.

I just looked as I wasn't positive but, the table you list was added in DPA 11.1 not in 11.0 so you will, in fact, need to upgrade
