AWS X-Ray now supports trace context propagation for Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) enabling customers to view end-to-end requests when using Amazon S3. AWS X-Ray traces user requests as they travel through your entire application. It aggregates the data generated by the individual services like AWS Lambda, Amazon EC2 and the many resources that make up your application, providing you an end-to-end view of how your application is performing.

With this feature, you can see the end-to-end request using the X-Ray Service Maps that lets you see relationships between Amazon S3 and other AWS services and resources in your application in near real time.

You can easily detect where high latencies are occurring, visualize node distribution for these services, and then drill down into the specific services and paths impacting application performance. You can also use the X-Ray Analytics console to analyze traces, view metrics such as latency and failure rates and generate Insights to help you identify and troubleshoot issues. 

AWS X-Ray support for Amazon S3 is available in all regions that support AWS X-Ray. Please see the regions table for more information. 

For more information on this feature, see Amazon S3 and AWS X-Ray in the AWS X-Ray Developer Guide and Tracing Amazon S3 Using AWS X-Ray in the Amazon S3 Developer Guide.
