Application Insights Client - AWS SDK for JavaScript v3

@aws-sdk/client-application-insights

NPM version NPM downloads

Description

AWS SDK for JavaScript ApplicationInsights Client for Node.js, Browser and React Native.

Amazon CloudWatch Application Insights

Amazon CloudWatch Application Insights is a service that helps you detect common problems with your applications. It enables you to pinpoint the source of issues in your applications (built with technologies such as Microsoft IIS, .NET, and Microsoft SQL Server), by providing key insights into detected problems.

After you onboard your application, CloudWatch Application Insights identifies, recommends, and sets up metrics and logs. It continuously analyzes and correlates your metrics and logs for unusual behavior to surface actionable problems with your application. For example, if your application is slow and unresponsive and leading to HTTP 500 errors in your Application Load Balancer (ALB), Application Insights informs you that a memory pressure problem with your SQL Server database is occurring. It bases this analysis on impactful metrics and log errors.

Installing

To install the this package, simply type add or install @aws-sdk/client-application-insights using your favorite package manager:

  • npm install @aws-sdk/client-application-insights
  • yarn add @aws-sdk/client-application-insights
  • pnpm add @aws-sdk/client-application-insights

Getting Started

Import

The AWS SDK is modulized by clients and commands. To send a request, you only need to import the ApplicationInsightsClient and the commands you need, for example CreateApplicationCommand:

// ES5 example
const { ApplicationInsightsClient, CreateApplicationCommand } = require("@aws-sdk/client-application-insights");
// ES6+ example
import { ApplicationInsightsClient, CreateApplicationCommand } from "@aws-sdk/client-application-insights";

Usage

To send a request, you:

  • Initiate client with configuration (e.g. credentials, region).
  • Initiate command with input parameters.
  • Call send operation on client with command object as input.
  • If you are using a custom http handler, you may call destroy() to close open connections.
// a client can be shared by different commands.
const client = new ApplicationInsightsClient({ region: "REGION" });

const params = {
  /** input parameters */
};
const command = new CreateApplicationCommand(params);

Async/await

We recommend using await operator to wait for the promise returned by send operation as follows:

// async/await.
try {
  const data = await client.send(command);
  // process data.
} catch (error) {
  // error handling.
} finally {
  // finally.
}

Async-await is clean, concise, intuitive, easy to debug and has better error handling as compared to using Promise chains or callbacks.

Promises

You can also use Promise chaining to execute send operation.

client.send(command).then(
  (data) => {
    // process data.
  },
  (error) => {
    // error handling.
  }
);

Promises can also be called using .catch() and .finally() as follows:

client
  .send(command)
  .then((data) => {
    // process data.
  })
  .catch((error) => {
    // error handling.
  })
  .finally(() => {
    // finally.
  });

Callbacks

We do not recommend using callbacks because of callback hell, but they are supported by the send operation.

// callbacks.
client.send(command, (err, data) => {
  // process err and data.
});

v2 compatible style

The client can also send requests using v2 compatible style. However, it results in a bigger bundle size and may be dropped in next major version. More details in the blog post on modular packages in AWS SDK for JavaScript

import * as AWS from "@aws-sdk/client-application-insights";
const client = new AWS.ApplicationInsights({ region: "REGION" });

// async/await.
try {
  const data = await client.createApplication(params);
  // process data.
} catch (error) {
  // error handling.
}

// Promises.
client
  .createApplication(params)
  .then((data) => {
    // process data.
  })
  .catch((error) => {
    // error handling.
  });

// callbacks.
client.createApplication(params, (err, data) => {
  // process err and data.
});

Troubleshooting

When the service returns an exception, the error will include the exception information, as well as response metadata (e.g. request id).

try {
  const data = await client.send(command);
  // process data.
} catch (error) {
  const { requestId, cfId, extendedRequestId } = error.$$metadata;
  console.log({ requestId, cfId, extendedRequestId });
  /**
   * The keys within exceptions are also parsed.
   * You can access them by specifying exception names:
   * if (error.name === 'SomeServiceException') {
   *     const value = error.specialKeyInException;
   * }
   */
}
