Researching how AWS X-RAY can help developers debug distributed applications. The session focuses on creating a serverless microservice application consisting of API-Gateway, Lambda and DynamoDB and the AWS X-Ray tracing library and how to get insights into the behavior of the application.
AWS X-Ray helps developers analyze and debug production, distributed applications, such as those built using a microservices architecture. With X-Ray, you can understand how your application and its underlying services are performing to identify and troubleshoot the root cause of performance issues and errors. X-Ray provides an end-to-end view of requests as they travel through your application, and shows a map of your application’s underlying components. You can use X-Ray to analyze both applications in development and in production, from simple three-tier applications to complex microservices applications consisting of thousands of services.
