Near Real-time Processing of Amazon CloudWatch Logs with AWS Lambda

Posted on: Sep 30, 2015

We are happy to announce that you can now use AWS Lambda to process your Amazon CloudWatch Logs events in near real-time. This new functionality enables you to configure a Lambda function to handle your log events that are sent to CloudWatch Logs. With CloudWatch Logs, you can perform near real-time monitoring of log data from your servers or AWS resources. Integration with Lambda expands this capability to include any code that you can run in a Lambda function.

To learn more about how to get started processing your CloudWatch Log events with a Lambda function, see the CloudWatch Developer Guide. You can also visit the Lambda console and choose the "cloudwatch-logs-process-data" blueprint. For more information about Lambda, see the Lambda Developer Guide. Standard Lambda and CloudWatch Logs charges apply to your usage. For information on pricing, see the CloudWatch pricing and Lambda pricing pages.
