We are excited to announce the availability of the Splunk extension for AWS Lambda, a new way to integrate monitoring and observability in Lambda environments. Splunk is already the pioneer in providing real-time observability into serverless environments. With the Splunk extension, capturing and ingesting observability data become seamless without the need to instrument function code.
Using the Splunk extension, DevOps teams can automatically ingest Lambda platform performance metrics in real-time and easily understand the performance, usage and bottlenecks across the entire Lambda environment. Splunk extension plug directly into Lambda's execution environment to capture telemetry data using independent parallel processes – before, during and after the function invocation. Splunk extension becomes the foundation for end-to-end observability in AWS Lambda environments.
The Splunk extension for Lambda is available as a Lambda layer in different AWS regions.
When you invoke a Lambda function, the request is processed in a new sandbox called the execution environment. The Lambda platform manages the execution environment's lifecycle to ensure you only pay for that function invocation and avoid idle compute costs. After the function invocation, Lambda freezes the code runtime and thaws when new invokes are received and a frozen environment is available. If a function has not been executed for some time or if you need to process more concurrent requests, AWS Lambda will start a new environment to execute your functions.
Lambda extensions are shared libraries that run side-by-side with functions inside the same execution environment. Using the Lambda Extension API, Splunk extension influences and participates in the function lifecycle to process low latency and high-resolution observability data.
