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

What is AWS Lambda?

AWS Lambda is currently the most popular offering in the space of “Function as a Service” or “Serverless” computing.

AWS Lambda lets you run code without provisioning or managing servers. It executes a function only when needed and it scales automatically, from a few requests per day to thousands per second. A Lambda function is a piece of code running in a dedicated container in AWS. It is triggered by other AWS services, eg data inserted into a database, or an event coming from an IoT device. You can even build entire applications based on a Lambda architecture.

A big advantage of Lambda is how it charges the user. Rather than needing to pay for entire servers to run code, or pay for blocks of time, Lambda only charges for the compute time you are using – specifically, charging every 100 ms that the code is executed and the number of times the code is triggered.

With Dynatrace you can replace multiple tools with one unified monitoring solution: user experience, application performance, AWS metrics including CloudWatch data, 3rd party monitoring, network metrics and log analytics.
