What is the purpose and functionality of AWS X-Ray? AWS X-Ray is a platform designed to assist developers in analyzing and troubleshooting production and distributed applications, particularly those built with a microservice architecture. By tracking requests, it generates a service map for users to understand the performance of their application and its underlying services. Additionally, AWS X-Ray monitors response codes to automatically identify any errors or bugs in the user’s application code. It also provides a range of query APIs, allowing users to develop their own analysis and visualization applications using the recorded data. To get started with AWS X-Ray, users need to include the X-Ray language SDK in their application and install the software agent. The platform offers APIs to ingest request data, configure the service, and query traces.
