Logging Amazon CodeGuru Profiler API calls with AWS CloudTrail - Amazon CodeGuru Profiler

Logging Amazon CodeGuru Profiler API calls with AWS CloudTrail

Amazon CodeGuru Profiler is integrated with AWS CloudTrail, a service that provides a record of actions taken by a user, role, or an AWS service in CodeGuru Profiler. CloudTrail captures all API calls for CodeGuru Profiler as events, including calls from the CodeGuru Profiler console and from code calls to the CodeGuru Profiler APIs. If you create a trail, you can enable continuous delivery of CloudTrail events to an Amazon S3 bucket, including events for CodeGuru Profiler. If you don't configure a trail, you can still view the most recent events in the CloudTrail console in Event history. Using the information collected by CloudTrail, you can determine the request that was made to CodeGuru Profiler, the IP address from which the request was made, who made the request, when it was made, and additional details.

To learn more about CloudTrail, see the AWS CloudTrail User Guide.

Amazon CodeGuru Profiler information in CloudTrail

CloudTrail is enabled on your AWS account when you create the account. When activity occurs in CodeGuru Profiler, that activity is recorded in a CloudTrail event with other AWS service events in Event history. You can view, search, and download recent events in your AWS account. For more information, see Viewing events with CloudTrail event history in the AWS CloudTrail User Guide.

For an ongoing record of events in your AWS account, including events for CodeGuru Profiler, create a trail. A trail enables CloudTrail to deliver log files to an Amazon S3 bucket. By default, when you create a trail in the console, the trail applies to all AWS Regions. The trail logs events from all Regions in the AWS partition and delivers the log files to the S3 bucket that you specify. You can configure other AWS services to further analyze and act on the event data collected in CloudTrail logs. For more information, see the following:

All CodeGuru Profiler actions are logged by CloudTrail and are documented in the Amazon CodeGuru Profiler API Reference. For example, calls to the CreatProfilingGroup (in the AWS CLI, create-profiling-group), ConfigureAgent (in the AWS CLI, configure-agent), and UpdateProfilingGroup (in the AWS CLI, update-profiling-group) actions generate entries in the CloudTrail log files.

Every event or log entry contains information about who generated the request. The identity information helps you determine the following:

  • Whether the request was made with root or IAM user credentials

  • Whether the request was made with temporary security credentials for a role or federated user

  • Whether the request was made by another AWS service

For more information, see the CloudTrail userIdentity element in the AWS CloudTrail User Guide.

Understanding Amazon CodeGuru Profiler log file entries

A trail is a configuration that enables delivery of events as log files to an Amazon S3 bucket that you specify. CloudTrail log files contain one or more log entries. An event represents a single request from any source and includes information about the requested action, the date and time of the action, request parameters, and so on. CloudTrail log files are not an ordered stack trace of the public API calls, so they don't appear in any specific order.

Example: A log entry for calling the ConfigureAgent API

A log entry created by ConfigureAgent includes the name of the profile group in the requestParameters field.

Example: A log entry for posting an agent profile

A log entry created by PostAgentProfile includes the name of the profile group in the requestParameters field.
