AWS Lambda Performance: Main Issues and How To Overcome Them

In this article, learn about the major issues affecting AWS lambda performance to improve your project’s speed and efficiency and cut unnecessary costs!

Introduction

AWS Lambda gives users powerhouse capabilities out-of-the-box. It enables web designers and creators to handle the broadest range of tasks. And yet, if you are looking to build a sturdy, smooth, and fast-running server infrastructure, the service’s standard functionality may not be enough. The good thing is that you can optimize AWS Lambda performance issues and tailor the platform to your particular needs.

Let’s find out how to actually avoid or eliminate the most relevant AWS Lambda performance issues.

Spring: A Static Web Site Generator Written By GitHub Issues

Spring

Spring is a blog engine written by GitHub Issues, or is a simple, static web site generator. No more server and database, you can setup it in free hosting with GitHub Pages as a repository, then post the blogs in the repository Issues.

You can add some labels in your repository Issues as the blog category, and create Issues for writing blog content through Markdown.

Spring has responsive templates, looking good on mobile, tablet, and desktop.Gracefully degrading in older browsers. Compatible with Internet Explorer 10+ and all modern browsers.

Get up and running in seconds.

中文介绍

Quick start guide

For the impatient, here's how to get a Spring blog site up and running.

First of all

  • Fork the Spring repository as yours.
  • Goto your repository settings page to rename Repository Name.
  • Hosted directly on GitHub Pages from your project repository, you can take it as User or organization site or Project site(create a gh-pages branch).
  • Also, you can set up a custom domain with Pages.

Secondly

  • Open the index.html file to edit the config variables with yours below.
$.extend(spring.config, {
  // my blog title
  title: 'Spring',
  // my blog description
  desc: "A blog engine written by github issues [Fork me on GitHub](https://github.com/zhaoda/spring)",
  // my github username
  owner: 'zhaoda',
  // creator's username
  creator: 'zhaoda',
  // the repository name on github for writting issues
  repo: 'spring',
  // custom page
  pages: [
  ]
})
  • Put your domain into the CNAME file if you have.
  • Commit your change and push it.

And then

  • Goto your repository settings page to turn on the Issues feature.
  • Browser this repository's issues page, like this https://github.com/your-username/your-repo-name/issues?state=open.
  • Click the New Issue button to just write some content as a new one blog.

Finally

  • Browser this repository's GitHub Pages url, like this http://your-username.github.io/your-repo-name, you will see your Spring blog, have a test.
  • And you're done!

Custom development

Installation

  • You will need a web server installed on your system, for example, Nginx, Apache etc.
  • Configure your spring project to your local web server directory.
  • Run and browser it, like http://localhost/spring/dev.html .
  • dev.html is used to develop, index.html is used to runtime.

Customization

  • Browser http://localhost/spring/dev.html, enter the development mode.
  • Changes you want to modify the source code, like css, js etc.
  • Refresh dev.html view change.

Building

  • You will need Node.js installed on your system.
  • Installation package.
bash

$ npm install

*   Run grunt task.

    ```bash
$ grunt
  • Browser http://localhost/spring/index.html, enter the runtime mode.
  • If there is no problem, commit and push the code.
  • Don't forget to merge master branch into gh-pages branch if you have.
  • And you're done! Good luck!

Cross-account access to invoke AWS lambda using AWS CDK

If you are here, you may have a pretty good knowledge of how to use AWS CDK for defining cloud infrastructure in code and provisioning it through AWS. So let’s get started on how to grant permission to your lambda function to access the resources in another AWS account.

Let’s say you have two accounts called Account A and Account B, and you need to give permission to lambda function in Account A (ex: 11111111)to access the resources in Account B(22222222). You can easily do this by assuming an IAM Role in Account B and then uses the returned credentials to invoke AWS resources in Account B.

Cache secrets using AWS Lambda extensions

What is the AWS Lambda extension?

A month back AWS announced a preview of Lambda Extensions, a new way to easily integrate Lambda with your favorite monitoring, observability, security, and governance tools. Extensions can be published as Lambda layers, there are two types are extension:

  • Internal extensions → Run as part of the runtime process, in-process with your code. Internal extensions enable use cases such as automatically instrumenting code.
  • External extensions → Allow you to run separate processes from the runtime but still within the same execution environment as the Lambda function. External extensions can start before the runtime process and can continue after the runtime shuts down. These extensions run as companion processes to Lambda functions.

Adding Code to AWS Lambda, Lambda Layers, and Lambda Extensions Using Docker

2020 was a difficult year for all of us, and it was no different for engineering teams. Many software releases were postponed, and the industry slowed its development speed quite a bit.

But at least at AWS, some teams released updates out of the door at the end of the year. AWS Lambda received two significant improvements:

  • AWS Lambda Extensions; and
  • Support of Docker images for your functions.

With these two new features and Lambda Layers, we now have three ways to add code to Lambda that isn’t directly part of our Lambda function.

The question is now: when should we use what?

In this article, I try to shine some light on the Lambda Layers, Lambda Extensions, and Docker image for Lambda.

First things first. All these Lambda features can be used together. So if you think about where to put your code, at least your decisions aren’t mutually exclusive. You can upload a Docker image and attach a regular Lambda Layer and a Lambda Extension. The same is possible if your Lambda function is based on a ZIP archive.

What does this all mean? Keep reading and find out.
