Arm architecture is ubiquitous in today’s smartphones, IoT devices, and even some laptops. Earlier, the adoption of Arm-based processors was due to the low cost and low power consumption. However, in the last few years, Arm-based processors have come leaps and bounds in terms of performance too. That is why there has been a significant adoption of Arm in cloud computing.

 

AWS Graviton2 processors deliver the best price performance for cloud workloads. Recently, AWS also announced support for AWS Lambda functions to run on Arm/Graviton2 or x86 processors. Epsagon fully supports Graviton2 processors. So, with Epsagon, users can now monitor their AWS lambda functions that run on Graviton2 processors.

 

Monitoring AWS Lambda Functions

 

If you have an application running in production, allowing your customers to experience downtime is simply unacceptable. So knowing immediately when something breaks is priceless. Epsagon can deliver this peace of mind, enabling you to monitor and troubleshoot all of your functions in just a few minutes. Epsagon provides an intuitive functions screen that you can use to see all the metrics associated with your Lambda functions.
