Instrument AWS Lambda functions for Splunk Observability Cloud 🔗

Use the Splunk OpenTelemetry Lambda Layer to automatically instrument AWS Lambda functions to send application metrics and traces to Splunk APM. The layer supports numerous programming languages through integrated wrappers, and includes a metrics extension that collects high-resolution, low-latency metrics every time the function runs.

To instrument your AWS Lambda function using the Splunk OpenTelemetry Lambda Layer, follow these steps:

  1. Check compatibility and requirements.

  2. Install the AWS Lambda layer.

  3. Configure the Splunk OpenTelemetry Lambda layer.

Splunk Observability Cloud can also collect AWS Lambda metrics and logs from AWS CloudWatch. See Connect AWS to Splunk Observability Cloud for more information on how to connect Splunk Observability Cloud to your AWS services.
