How to stream AWS CloudWatch logs to LOGIQ

AWS CloudWatch is an observability and monitoring service that provides you with actionable insights to monitor your applications, stay on top of performance changes, and optimize resource utilization while providing a centralized view of operational health. AWS CloudWatch collects operational data of your AWS resources, applications, and services running on AWS and on-prem servers in the form of logs, metrics, and events. CloudWatch then uses this data to help detect and troubleshoot issues and errors in your environments, visualize logs and metrics, set up and take automated actions, and uncover insights that help keep your applications and deployments running smoothly.

AWS CloudWatch provides excellent observability for your applications and infrastructure hosted on AWS. But what about your applications and resources hosted on service providers? While you can stream their logs into CloudWatch using proxies and exporters, it isn’t that straightforward. You’d have to monitor them separately using a your service provider’s own monitoring tool or build something in-house using Prometheus or Grafana, maybe. Why train your eyes to watch multiple monitoring tools when you can centralize monitoring and observability across your on-premise servers and cloud providers with LOGIQ? LOGIQ plugs into numerous data sources to centralize your logs and visualize them in a single pane regardless of the service provider.

An overview of CloudWatch Metrics for AWS Lambda

Learn how to monitor CloudWatch Metrics for AWS Lambda Functions

In this article, I am going to discuss about AWS Lambda execution and monitoring using the CloudWatch metrics. AWS Lambda lets you run your applications on the cloud without having to provision any servers. All you need to do is write your code using your preferred programming language and deploy your code to AWS Lambda. You can then directly run your programs using the resources provided by AWS. At the time of writing this article, AWS Lambda supports programs written in Java, NodeJS, C#, PowerShell, Python, Ruby and Go.

Automating CloudWatch Logs Aggregation

CloudWatch logs are a very useful tool for Lambda debugging. However, since our entire solution is serverless and we’re running multiple Lambda functions across several environments, we quickly realized that we need a better logging solution - one that will enable us to get a centralized cross-system overview and facilitate cross-services debugging.

After checking a lot of options (including running our own ELK) we decided to use a specialized solution provider, most of which have a very useful free tier too (We choose Logz.io).

Logz.io and most of the solution providers provide you with a Shipper Lambda that you create in your account and all you need to do is to connect all your log-groups to that Lambda. That Lambda takes care of parsing and forwarding your logs to their service.

The question is, how do you connect all your log groups to that Lambda?

We realized that our optimal solution will be something that enables us to:

  1. Automatically registers all log groups
  2. Can add metadata to the logs (running env, service name…) to facilitate search and debug

The Basic Solution — Manually connect your Log-Groups

This solution wasn’t relevant for us, but if you have a small environment with only a few Lambdas — this will work best for you. Once you’ve created the ShipperLambda for your solution provider, go to the Lambda triggers and manually add each log group.

The default log group name for Lambda is /aws/lambda/{your-Lambda's-name}

Adding a CloudWatch Log trigger to the Shipper Lambda

Do notice, however, that you can only connect triggers of an existing log group: Your Lambda’s log group is only created on the first time your Lambda writes anything, So if your Lambda hasn’t run yet, you won’t be able to connect it.
