Hi,
We have a Windows 2008 server and our development team has installed and cofigured Message quesing in that. Under private Queues they have configured lot of ques for their application.
Now they want us to setup monitoring and alerting mechanism so that if "Number of Messages" increases in any que we should get alert.
Please let me know any Microsoft or Non-Microsoft solution for it.

Can you check with your dev team if this will work for them

This works with binary as well as XML messages.
Open source.

If you Have SCOM in your organization you can set it to monitor MSMQ
Also at worst case Performance counters for the MSMQ objects provide all the information you need , basically that is what all those tools do, connect to your servers using WMI , read the performance counters of the MSMQ objects , and report back in case a condition is met.
Although the open source tool above looks promising (free stuff always is)  I am a bit worried about the operations of the server side console application, MSMQ is usually a mission critical, IO intensive operation, if I were in your Place I would test it heavily first in a test environment before applying to production.
Another Excellent paid product that I use to monitor my queues among hundreds of other useful monitoring checks is GFI  Network server monitor, as a bonus , you can set alerting and scriptable actions ( for example on an MSMQ cluster if message number exceeded X , restart MSMQ & MSMQ Triggering services on cluster node A, then once complete restart it on cluster node B etc, then send a mail if the message numbers returned below the normal threshold)

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.
