With Sumo Logic’s cloud-native data analytics application for AWS Lambda, you gain insight into the health of all your Lambda functions and the ability to correlate performance with costs.
Why the Sumo Logic App for AWS Lambda?
Gain visibility into the costs of AWS Lambda functions and optimize resources where appropriate.
Ensure that all your AWS functions are healthy by analyzing operational and performance trends. Identify exceptions and remediate quickly leveraging real-time dashboards.
Track the adoption and performance for different versions of a single AWS Lambda function such as resizing an application to fit a mobile device, tablet or laptop, which can help evaluate the impact of that particular function.
What is AWS Lambda?
AWS Lambda is a new service that allows developers run code without provisioning or managing servers. You can run code for virtually any type of application or backend service and set up code to automatically trigger from other AWS services or call it directly from web or mobile applications.
With Lambda, developers do not provision AWS instances since Lambda performs all the operational and administrative activities. The code you run on AWS Lambda is called a “Lambda function, ” which includes your code as well as some associated configuration information. You can execute as many copies of Lambda functions as needed. AWS Lambda:
- Provisions capacity
- Monitors fleet health
- Applies security patches
- Deploys code
- Runs web service front ends
- Monitors and logs your code
- Scales as needed
Gain Deep Insights
Using the Sumo Logic App for AWS Lambda, you can drill into the health of all your Lambda instances and:
- Monitor all Lambda functions for performance and operational trends.
- Measure key performance indicators per function, including requests, billed duration and maximum memory.
- Evaluate the impact of a specific function by comparing adoption and performance to other functions.
- Calculate the costs associated with specific Lambda functions to optimize spend.
The Sumo Logic App for Lambda reports are based on:
- Billed duration
- Memory size allocated
- Max memory used
- Compute usage (memory size x billed duration)
- Unused memory
Integrate CloudWatch Logs Effortlessly
Log data contains valuable information about events and errors that occur in your AWS environment. Because log files include time-critical information, it is of the utmost importance to collect and analyze the information as quickly as possible.
Route your Amazon CloudWatch logs to Sumo Logic for advanced analytics and real-time visualization using the Sumo Logic Lambda function. Available in the AWS Blueprint Library, the Lambda function allows you to:
- Execute a Lambda function to route CloudWatch logs to Sumo Logic without requiring multiple calls.
- Collect CloudWatch logs in real-time.
- Visualize your CloudWatch log data with other log sources for top-to-bottom application visibility.
