Today, AWS X-Ray launches in preview X-Ray Insights, which uses anomaly detection to create actionable insights about any anomalies in an application. With X-Ray Insights, you can proactively identify issues signaled by increases in the fault rate of an application.

With this feature, you can determine the root cause of the issue, visualize the upstream and downstream services affected by the anomaly, and understand its impact on your end users. You can also view the incident timeline to understand when the issue started and how it progressed.

AWS X-Ray Insights is available in the following AWS regions: US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon), Canada (Central), South America (Sao Paulo), EU (London), EU (Frankfurt), EU (Ireland), EU (Milan), EU (Paris), EU (Stockholm), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Africa (Cape Town), Middle East (Bahrain). For information on X-Ray's availability please refer to the AWS Region Table.
