Serverless computing with AWS Lambda is an increasingly popular business solution, but keeping track of Lambda function activity isn’t always so easy. Sumo Logic’s integration with AWS CloudTrail’s logging of Lambda data events helps you continuously monitor your Lambda functions and gain insight into the AWS Lambda function activity.
The adoption of serverless computing has grown considerably in the past few years. The increase in the number of developers leveraging serverless architectures is driven by the simplified deployment, ease of maintenance, and decrease in time to market for software releases. Consequently, the demand for monitoring of the serverless architectures is expected to increase. Today, Amazon Web Services announced new AWS CloudTrail functionality called AWS Lambda data events. This functionality allows you to continuously monitor the execution activity of your Lambda functions and record details on when and by whom an Invoke API call was made.
Data events are recorded in CloudTrail logs. For greater ease of use and AWS monitoring, consider taking things to the next level with Sumo Logic.
Sumo Logic’s integration makes understanding Lambda data events simple and easy, without parsing through individual log files. It helps you gain insight and visualize your AWS Lambda function activity. It also helps you meet your IT auditing and security compliance needs by providing details on users and services that invoke Lambda functions.
Here’s an example dashboard showing some of the information available to you at a glance:
