Starting today, you can monitor the Lambda functions associated with your Amazon CloudFront distributions directly from your Amazon CloudFront console for an easier monitoring and debugging experience.

Previously, you had to access the CloudFront and AWS Lambda consoles separately to monitor your distributions and the associated functions. With today's announcement, you get the following benefits on the CloudFront console:

  • A revamped monitoring dashboard that lists all of your CloudFront distributions and associated Lambda@Edge functions. This allows you to quickly select and view both distribution metrics and associated function execution metrics.
  • A streamlined distribution metrics view with aggregated Lambda@Edge 5xx errors that are logically grouped by distribution, which makes it easier to distinguish and troubleshoot whether CloudFront 5xx errors are caused by your origins or a Lambda@Edge function.
  • A new detailed Lambda@Edge errors view for each distribution that shows a regional breakdown of function error metrics: function execution errors, invalid function response errors, and throttles. If you see a spike in errors in one or more AWS Regions, you can select the Region and view the logs for that Region that are stored in AWS CloudWatch.

Today's announcement does not change any capabilities on the Lambda console. Read our blog for a step-by-step guide to monitoring and debugging your Lambda functions using the CloudFront console.
