CloudWatch Application Insights for .NET and SQL Server now supports AWS Lambda and CloudWatch Events

Posted on: Apr 22, 2020

Amazon CloudWatch has added new features to the Application Insights for .NET and SQL Server capability to further enhance observability for your .NET and SQL Server based applications. Starting today, if you are running your .NET Core applications on AWS Lambda, CloudWatch Application Insights sets up automated alarms based on dynamically identified thresholds for your Lambda metrics, and provides out-of-the-box analysis for the logs and application traces associated with your Lambda functions. In addition, you can now use CloudWatch Application Insights to detect and troubleshoot problems in your applications due to AWS Health events across your AWS account, Amazon EC2 state changes, and deployment events on AWS CodeDeploy, enabling you to further reduce your mean time to resolution (MTTR) 

Amazon CloudWatch Application Insights enables observability for your .NET and SQL Server based applications and underlying AWS resources. Getting started is easy; you can set up important monitors for your applications using a few clicks in the CloudWatch console. For the detected issues, you can use CloudWatch Automatic Dashboards to visualize problem details, helping application owners troubleshoot faster and reduce their mean time to resolution. CloudWatch Application Insights is available in all AWS public regions at no additional charge, you pay for monitoring data set up on CloudWatch.
