Understanding Your Application Performance - Serverless Architectures with AWS Lambda

Understanding Your Application Performance

To get visibility into the various components of your application architecture, which could include one or more Lambda functions, we recommend that you use AWS X-Ray. X-Ray lets you trace the full lifecycle of an application request through each of its component parts, showing the latency and other metrics of each component separately, as shown in the following figure.
