The new importer works by streaming logs from CloudWatch with a Kinesis stream ensures that Dashbird does not miss a single invocation and that the delay is not dependant on the inner workings or Dashbird log-polling worker.
A major improvement is addressing the developers need for easy observability into their serverless applications. Now the latency has been shaved down to under 30 seconds. With the old importer you’d have to wait around 2 minutes to see function updates in the dashboard so getting that number lower was a big win.
What this means for you is that you will be able to basically monitor your app in real time.
Here’s how simple it really is.
