You can configure AppDynamics Database Monitoring to alert you when certain conditions are met or exceeded for monitored databases, operating systems, and server hardware.  The Getting Started Wizard can help you through the process if you're new to using AppDynamics Pro. Alternatively you can create alerting policies manually if you are already familiar with the process.  

You configure Health Rules, Actions, Policies, and Email Digests for monitoring databases almost exactly the same as you would configure these for monitored applications.

The Database Health Rule is applied to a specific database instance being monitored and is based on metrics you select. The Health Rule is violated when specified critical or warning conditions are met for that database.

Database Policy Actions are limited to email or SMS message notifications and custom actions that have been uploaded to the Controller.

Once you have defined Health Rules and Actions you can create a Policy based on a Health Rule to send you an email or an SMS message when a Health rule is violated. 

When you are creating database health rules for 4.1, you should not use the "default baseline" choice for your conditions.
