Amazon CloudWatch Synthetics is a fully managed synthetic monitoring service that enables you to monitor your endpoints and URLs using configurable scripts called canaries that run 24x7.
This feature for AWS X-Ray enables you to quickly determine if there is a problem in your CloudWatch Synthetics canaries, determine the root cause of the issue, and identify the upstream and downstream services impacted. You can also identify performance bottlenecks and trends seen by CloudWatch Synthetics canaries, allowing you to compare the end user experience with your canaries and determine the appropriate test coverage for your endpoints and URLs.
This feature is available in all regions where Amazon CloudWatch Synthetics is available, like Northern Virgina, Ohio, and Ireland. For information on X-Ray's overall availability please refer to the AWS Region Table.
