Amazon CloudWatch Lambda Insights, now available in preview, enables you to monitor, troubleshoot, and optimize the performance of AWS Lambda functions. With this preview, you have access to automated dashboards summarizing the performance and health of your Lambda functions that provide visibility into issues such as memory leaks or performance changes caused by new function versions.

With Lambda Insights, you can use the multi-function view to understand how compute, memory allocation, and function duration changes over time to optimize Lambda function utilization. You can use the single-function view dive deep and troubleshoot individual request problems. Additionally, to easily troubleshoot root causes of a Lambda issue you can take advantage of the integrations with AWS offerings, such as CloudWatch Logs Insights to analyze function logs and CloudWatch ServiceLens to analyze trace dependencies.

You can start collecting detailed performance metrics, logs, and metadata from your Lambda functions with just one-click in the AWS Lambda Console. Or use the AWS CLI or CloudFormation to enable Lambda Insights. CloudWatch Lambda Insights is now available in preview in sixteen AWS Regions. You only pay for what you use for metrics and logs. See the CloudWatch pricing page for a pricing example. Learn more about how to use Lambda Insights.
