Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides multiple
services for cache, database, queue, mail, alerting, storage, content
delivery, and many more. This simplifies the app developing process and
reduces the development turnaround time. SMBs can easily develop and
deploy an application using various AWS services.
Monitoring such applications that are built and deployed in AWS
using its services is the need of the hour. Your favorite app
performance monitoring feature - APM Insight is now capable of tracking the performance of AWS Services / API Calls in user's applications.
When an application accesses AWS services through AWS SDK, the
APM Insight agent automatically picks up those requests and starts
tracking the performance of those service calls, thus giving you
detailed visibility into the split up of time taken by each of the
component used in your application.
This would assist you in deciding how well the applications
behave in order to modify the existing AWS configurations and fine tune
