Lumigon T3 hands on - John McAfee's "most secure phone"


    Just works out of the box.

    Before using Lumigo I worked with clients on all sorts of hacks to debug Serverless Apps. This involved cluttering the code base with logs and deciphering the output on CloudWatch. A fellow consultant told us about his success with Lumigo. We decided to give it a go. Within minutes, our customers started to enjoy meaningful, actionable insights. All our clients now probably enjoy a reduction of about 60 percent in our time-to-response has been cut by about 60 percent.

    Reduces the clutter when debugging Serverless applications

    I've been using Lumigo in the past year. It's been helping me find underline issues that are much harder to find compared to cloudwatch, it puts everything in a unified view and reduces the need to move between a list of logs in CloudWatch. I like the alerts that come out of the box and especially the integration with external tools, noo need for me to write any Lambda to interact with my Slack channel.

    APM + dist-tracing for serverless

    Best onboarding of an APM I've seen. No code changes and literally 5 clicks. Really helps the team spot production glitches and understand root cause immediately.

    I love the idea of presenting distributed system flow via visual maps !

    πŸ‘ Pros:    Seamless onboarding|Pre-configured serverless alerts|100% automated distributed tracing
    πŸ‘Ž Cons:    Does not support on premise servers
    Saves me hours every week debugging my serverless env.
    • Saves hours when debugging production
    • Trying out the new Lambda Extension showing me the CPU usage - super cool.
    • Out of the box alerts, showed me issues that were haunting me for months.
    • Started with my lambdas but found useful for other services as well - Kinesis, DynamoDB, RDS
    🏁 Competitors: NewRelic, Datadog, Amazon CloudWatch, AWS X-Ray
    πŸ‘ Pros:    Easy to setup|Great ui|Shows the small details that save time|Great support
    πŸ‘Ž Cons:    Don't cover gcp yet|Dont cover php
    Amazing smart alerts and debugging capabilities!

    Fantastic product. My entire serverless architecture is completely visible to me. For the first time, I can see how each and every micro service is performing. Using their product gave me the confidence to scale my serverless applications. My MTTR improved by 3X.

    10x faster than cloudwatch

    Lumigo saved me precious time by sending alerts on serverless issues in my environment, very detailed debug info (stack trace, event, http error codes) and logs after a very easy integration with AWS. Their transaction view is really cool because you can immediately see the full story of distributed complex flows in your system. Always adding improvements and new features that are serverless focused.

    Scaling Serverless Easily

    When we started our journey in serverless, we relied on built-in AWS tools like CloudWatch and Xray, but very quickly, we realized that it was nice for development, but for production, we'll need something more powerful.

    We gave Lumigo a try, and it turns out that it's beneficial. Its main benefits are that we can easily see everything we need to debug a production issue. We can also visualize the entire environment and efficiently identify and remove performance bottlenecks.

    🏁 Competitors: Datadog, AWS X-Ray, Amazon CloudWatch
    Improved our MTTR by 5x!

    I have been used lumigo for my side-project for a while, it helps us to get a great vision on our production status, errors, and latency errors. our MTTR (Mean time to repair) improved dramatically by 5x science using Lumigo

    🏁 Competitors: Datadog, NewRelic, AWS X-Ray, Amazon CloudWatch
    πŸ‘ Pros:    Instant alerts|Free basic plan|Catches most errors
    πŸ‘Ž Cons:    Useful filters
    My eyes in the serverless world

    Our entire production environment is serveless based, we wanted a way to have a better overview of our system since resolving issues became a headache as the system grew. We tried AWS cloudWatch & X-Ray but they just weren't what we were looking for, then I came across Lumigo which offered a deep dive into your serveless transactions & function flows, they were able to connect the dots for us and made debugging serverless environment possible.

    🏁 Competitors: Datadog, AWS X-Ray, NewRelic
    πŸ‘ Pros:    Easy integration|Great value for the money|Information is easily accessible
    πŸ‘Ž Cons:    Mobile-friendly
    Easy and trustworthy

    I installed Lumigo in my env a few weeks ago, it was so easy and fast, and they left me astonished! I could actually see what's going on and finally could debug the timeout that I had due to the 500 from dynamodb!

    🏁 Competitors: Datadog, AWS X-Ray, NewRelic, Thundra
    πŸ‘ Pros:    Fast onboarding|Full transaction observability|Instant alerts
    πŸ‘Ž Cons:    Missing alerts on containers|Missing cost explorer on more services
    The observability I needed

    After deploying Lumigo, I automatically started to get alerts about errors in my lambdas. Each alert comes with a link that helped me to find the bug and resolves it. I was also a major help during the development process. I deployed it also to my dev environment and it allowed me to easily find bugs in the features.

    Great Product at a Great Price with awesome customer service!

    Before Lumigo debugging Serverless application was a nightmare but now thanks to this new tool everything has changed. By integrating with Lumigo within a few minutes I was able to see my entire application structure, main issues/failures, and trace those issues right back to their root cause. If you run into any issue they have great customer service which is very responsive and helpful.

    🏁 Competitors: Datadog, NewRelic
    πŸ‘ Pros:    Easy to use|Easy user interface|Easy to track data

    Lumigo is a great tool for debugging and troubleshooting of AWS serverless components. It was a lifesaver for some major production issues I had.

  • The biggest problem with EventBridge Scheduler and how to fixΒ it
    Luckily, we just need to make sure the target Lambda function (for the schedule) receives the name of the schedule as part of its invocation event. Because the onSuccess function would receive this as requestPayload when it’s invoked by the Lambda service, as you can see from the trace collected in Lumigo:. - Source: / over 1 year ago
  • The Risks of Moving Too Quickly with Serverless Development
    No Indicators of Success - As much as we'd all like it, observability tools don't automatically track your business metrics. You can add APM vendors like BaseLime, Lumigo, and DataDog to your account, but unless you intentionally add meaningful metrics to track your KPIs, you're left in the dark. Metrics tend to fall by the wayside in many scenarios where speed is the primary objective. No business metrics mean... - Source: / over 1 year ago

  • How not to send all your money to AWS
    Consider using a 3rd party monitoring system like Lumigo or Datadog instead of outputting a lot of log messages. These external systems are not for free and not always allowed to use (especially in an enterprise context) but provide a lot of additional features which can make a real difference. - Source: / almost 2 years ago
  • Let's Stop Talking About Serverless Cold Starts
    A great case study was performed by Lumigo around performance impact of cold starts as it relates to package size and importing of dependencies. They found that as function package size increases, cold start duration increases, even if additional dependencies aren't being consumed! - Source: / almost 2 years ago
  • What Does The Future Hold For Serverless?
    Vendors like DataDog, Lumigo, and Thundra all attempt to solve this problem - with pretty good success. But it needs to be better. - Source: / almost 2 years ago

    Epsagon is now part of Cisco and FREE for everyone under the 10M trace, which is a lot for many. If you are over this limit, I think you need to look for alternatives, and there are many of them out there. A good one is Lumigo. - Source: / over 2 years ago
  • How do you monitor your express apps?
    Hey everyone, I cannot wrap my head around monitoring APIs in Node.js. After spending some time googling, it feels like hardly any people are doing this. I'm basically looking for a solution similar to Serverless Monitoring or Lumigo, but for classic Node.js servers, powered by Express. Source: over 2 years ago
  • What do you like/dislike about AWS services? What are the most common problems?
    Building on top of it requires some knowledge but for me it has been worth it. I use to manage all the infrastructure as a CF template. This has the benefit that I can deploy multiple test environments at will. I'm also using to do all the CI/CD ( also for free ) and doing all the monitoring with .

  • Tips to prevent a serverless wreck
    As an engineer, or someone responsible for monitoring a service, the best way to easily find and fix issues is through the use of observability and serverless monitoring tools rather than focusing on logs. Although AWS provide a service called AWS X-Ray for distributed tracing, there are better tools in the partner ecosystems such as those provided by Lumigo, Thundra, Instana and several others. For example,... - Source: / over 2 years ago
  • Monitoring AWS Lambda
    Lumigo offers visual debugging, and it also comes with tracing, metrics, and alert support, but, differing from Thundra, it is more focused on serverless monitoring, from the architecture down to function logs and traces. Lumigo also comes with a Lambda Layer/Extension for Python and Node.js runtimes to instrument Lambda functions. - Source: / almost 3 years ago
