Tracing Lambda With Instana

Tracing Lambda With Instana

Jun 5, 2020

Instana AutoTrace™ for AWS Lambda comes bundled with the native AutoTrace functionality for programming languages like Node.js and Python. Additional provisioning or initialization steps are not necessary, only wrap your code with the Instana AWS Lambda library.

If a new service is started, Instana AutoTrace will instrument the service on the fly and start reporting traces to the Instana backend. Discovery is fully automatic and continuous. Every service change will be recorded into Instana’s Dynamic Graph backend model.

To monitor your AWS Lambda Function written in Node.js or Python, simply follow the steps in our AWS Lambda Setup documentation: https://docs.instana.io/ecosystem/aws-lambda

When the service function is deployed to AWS Lambda, Instana AutoTrace will automatically instrument the application and start reporting to your Instana account.
