You can now use Amazon CloudWatch Lambda Insights to monitor, troubleshoot, and optimize the performance of AWS Lambda functions powered by AWS Graviton2 processor. With CloudWatch Lambda Insights you have access to automated dashboards summarizing the performance and health of your Lambda functions.

Lambda functions running on Arm-based AWS Graviton2 processors are designed to deliver up to 19% better performance at 20% lower cost compared to Lambda functions running on x86. This is for a variety of Serverless workloads such as web and mobile backends, data, and media processing. With lower latency and better performance, Lambda functions powered by AWS Graviton2 processors are ideal for powering mission critical Serverless applications. Customers can update existing x86-based functions to use the AWS Graviton2 processor or create new functions powered by AWS Graviton2 using the Console, API, AWS CloudFormation, and AWS CDK. AWS Lambda Layers will also support targeting x86-based or Arm-based functions using either zip files or container images. Now with CloudWatch Lambda Insights you can collect detailed performance metrics, logs, and metadata from these Lambda functions on Graviton2 providing visibility into issues such as memory leaks or performance changes caused by new function versions.

To get started with CloudWatch Lambda Insights Lambda functions powered by AWS Graviton2 processor using the AWS Management Console, AWS CLI or CloudFormation see the CloudWatch Lambda Insights page, now available in all standard AWS Regions. You only pay for what you use for metrics and logs. See the CloudWatch pricing page for a pricing example.
