What can AWS X-Ray do?

Amazon Web Services (AWS) X-Ray is a distributed tracing solution for AWS applications. No matter whether your application is made up of EC2 instances or microservices, AWS X-Ray helps developers analyze and debug complex applications running on AWS. With AWS X-Ray, you can understand how your application and its underlying services are performing to identify and troubleshoot the root cause of performance issues and errors. AWS X-Ray provides an end-to-end view of requests as they travel through your application. You can use AWS X-Ray to analyze both applications in development and in production, from simple three-tier applications to complex microservices applications consisting of thousands of services. For any traced request to your application, you can see detailed information not only about the request and response, but also about calls that your application makes to downstream AWS resources, microservices, databases and HTTP web API’s.
