AWS X-Ray Traces
AWS X-Ray enables developers to gather traces across their distributed services. In order to gain visibility into their applications, developers can use X-Ray to trace requests as they travel through their application, and collect data about the performance and errors of their application.
Baselime enables you to easily ingest this tracing data and make it available for analysis and troubleshooting.
Sending AWS X-Ray traces to Baselime is essential to gain a comprehensive view of your distributed applications. By ingesting X-Ray traces, Baselime can provide in-depth analysis and visualization of your application's performance and behavior, including end-to-end request tracking, error analysis, and latency monitoring.
Baselime automatically ingests AWS X-Ray traces, there is no need for any additional steps after connecting your AWS account.
How it works
To start ingesting traces from AWS X-Ray to Baselime, you'll need to connect your AWS account to Baselime. Once connected, Baselime will periodically poll your AWS account for new traces and automatically ingest them into your Baselime dataset.
If you're having trouble sending data from AWS X-Ray to Baselime, here are a few things to check:
- Verify that your AWS account is correctly connected to Baselime and you receive data in other datasets such as CloudWatch Metrics or CloudTrail Events
- Check that the Baselime IAM user has the appropriate permissions to access X-Ray
- Make sure that your applications emit X-Ray traces and you can view the traces in the X-Ray section of the AWS Console
