Monitor custom serverless metrics with the Datadog Lambda extension

When building serverless applications on AWS Lambda, Amazon CloudWatch provides out-of-the-box metrics that measure the performance, errors, and duration of your functions. Although these standard Lambda metrics provide visibility into your serverless applications, it can also be invaluable to monitor custom metrics that are unique to your use case and application.

Proactively monitor service performance with SLO alerts

Service level objectives (SLOs) state your team’s goals for maintaining the reliability of your services. Adopting SLOs is an SRE best practice because it can help you ensure that your services perform well and consistently deliver value to users. But to gain the greatest benefit from your SLOs, you need ongoing visibility into how well your services are performing relative to your objectives.

Monitor Azure Functions with the Datadog extension for Azure App Service

Azure Functions is an on-demand serverless compute offering built on top of Azure App Service that enables you to deploy event-driven code without the need to provision and manage infrastructure. Because applications rely on Azure Functions to handle business-critical tasks such as processing orders or logging in users, it’s important to ensure that your functions respond quickly when they’re invoked.
