Great writeup, Frank.

A colleague recently did a similar writeup that covers some of the same information, and then goes into a little more detail around logging from Lambda and how to reason about the metrics themselves. It's called How to Monitor AWS Lambda with CloudWatch. For your readers, it's a good follow-on to your writeup here.


Hi! I am not sure I understand your question. Can you elaborate a bit more on your use case? You can find more info on Lambda scaling behaviour in the AWS documentation.


Suppose I want to scale up instance if both memory and cpu utilisation exceeds the threshold but only 1 instance should get created if both condition satisfy. Its like AND/OR case. how can I do that?
