What is AWS Lambda?


AWS Lambda is one of the most popular serverless compute services in the market. Serverless functions help developers innovate faster, scale easier and reduce operational overhead, removing the burden of managing underlying infrastructure when updating and deploying code. Most enterprises use serverless functions as part of a broader hybrid environment, covering both cloud and traditional technologies.

Why do you need end-to-end monitoring for AWS Lambda?


The short answer is to get full visibility into all tiers of your stack. Think of a Lambda function that calls a slow API. This will not only extend the runtime of your function and add costs, it will also affect the overall performance of your application. Are you building large applications based on Lambda or micro service architectures? Then Lambda monitoring helps you to

  • Optimize response time hotspots
  • Optimize timing hotspots
  • Simplify error analytics
  • Understand and optimize your architecture
