Viewing Metrics for Step Functions

  1. Open the AWS Management Console and navigate to CloudWatch.

  2. Choose Metrics and on the All Metrics tab, choose States.

    If you ran any executions recently, you will see up to three types of metrics:

    • Execution Metrics

    • Activity Function Metrics

    • Lambda Function Metrics

  3. Choose a metric type to see a list of metrics.

    • To sort your metrics by Metric Name or StateMachineArn, use the column headings.

    • To view graphs for a metric, choose the box next to the metric on the list. You can change the graph parameters using the time range controls above the graph view.

      You can choose custom time ranges using relative or absolute values (specific days and times). You can also use the drop-down list to display values as lines, stacked areas, or numbers (values).

    • To view the details about a graph, hover over the metric color code which appears below the graph.

      The metric's details are displayed.
