Step 5: Additional configuration

After you enable serverless monitoring for AWS Lambda, you can add additional configuration to fine-tune your data.

Enable Infinite Tracing

Distributed tracing is included by default if you set up your functions using Lambda layers.

If your Lambda functions communicate with services that use the advanced type of distributed tracing called Infinite Tracing, you should enable this feature for your Lambda functions. This ensures that your Lambda spans are included with the rest of the spans tracked by Infinite Tracing.

To set this up for your Lambda functions, see the Infinite Tracing steps to create a trace observer and to select which Lambda functions (data sources) should report spans.

Set up alerts

Our alerts let you get notifications on anything you can monitor with New Relic, including APM metrics, key transactions, NRQL queries, and more.

For details about setting up alerts on Lambda functions, see monitoring for AWS Lambda: Configuring alerts

Add custom events

Besides the data we provide by default, you can also set up your own events or attributes.

For details about these language-specific settings, see Configuring custom attributes and events in AWS Lambda.
