Monitoring: AWS X-Ray

AWS X-Ray is a fully-managed service that provides end-to-end visibility into your application’s performance and behavior. It allows you to trace requests from beginning to end and analyze the performance of individual services and resources. With X-Ray, you can quickly identify and troubleshoot your application’s errors, latency, and bottlenecks.

  • Application Performance: X-Ray Insights provides detailed information on the performance and behavior of applications running on AWS. By monitoring Insights, you can quickly identify performance bottlenecks, diagnose issues, and optimize application performance.

  • Continuous Improvement: X-Ray Insights provides a way to monitor and improve application performance continuously. By monitoring Insights, you can identify areas for improvement, track progress, and implement changes to improve application performance and user experience continually.
