Welcome to the Epsagon Documentation. You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with our product as quickly as possible. Let's jump right in!

Get Started

Lambda Functions

The Epsagon agents allow you to collect and monitor your functions for metrics, traces, calls, and correlation to logs.

Auto-tracing for Node.js and Python functions

Using the Epsagon dashboard you can easily enable tracing for Node.js and Python functions.


AWS Lambda Auto-Tracing

This feature changes the functions' configuration by adding a layer and setting a new handler.
We recommend getting started with a few functions in development.

To enable auto-tracing, go to the functions screen, checkmark the desired functions on the left side, and under actions, click enable auto-tracing:

To disable, follow the same instructions, but under actions select disable auto-tracing:

Calling the SDK

You can manually call the Epsagon SDK library inside your Lambda functions.
Install our library according to your runtime:

npm install epsagon
pip install --upgrade epsagon
<!--Add the epsagon dependecy to your pom.xml-->
  <version>{Epsagon version}</version>
dotnet add package Epsagon.Dotnet.Lambda
# Using go get
go get github.com/epsagon/epsagon-go

# Using dep
dep ensure -add github.com/epsagon/epsagon-go

Inside your function handler (where you get the event and context) add the following snippet, and wrap the handler:

const epsagon = require('epsagon');
    token: '<epsagon-token>',
    appName: '<app-name-stage>',
    metadataOnly: false,

// Wrap your entry point
module.exports.handler = epsagon.lambdaWrapper((event, context, callback) => {
  // Your code is here

// Async functions supported
module.exports.handler = epsagon.lambdaWrapper(async (event) => {
  // Your code is here
import epsagon

# Wrap your entry point
def handle(event, context):
    # Your code is here
import com.epsagon.EpsagonRequestHandler;

// Make sure class extends com.epsagon.EpsagonRequestHandler
public class EpsagonWrapper extends EpsagonRequestHandler {
    static {
        try {
        } catch (Exception e) {
// either a) inherit from Epsagon's LambdaHander base class
// or b) pass handler through EpsagonHandler's callback

// inheriting from Epsagon's base LambdaHandler
public class Function : LambdaHandler<S3Event, string>
    // handler function
    public override string HandlerFunction(S3Event input, ILambdaContext context)
        // your lambda handler here ...

// passing handler through EpsagonHandler callback
using Epsagon.Dotnet.Lambda;

public class FunctionClass {
    public FunctionClass() {
        // initialize Epsagon agent
    // handler function
    public string MyHandler(S3Event input, ILambdaContext context) {
        // wrap entire function with EpsagonHandler.Handle()
        return EpsagonHandler.Handle<TEvent, TRes>(input, context, () => {
            // your lambda handler here ...
package main

import (

func myHandler(request events.APIGatewayProxyRequest) (events.APIGatewayProxyResponse, error) {
  log.Println("In myHandler, received body: ", request.Body)
  return events.APIGatewayProxyResponse{Body: request.Body, StatusCode: 200}, nil

func main() {
  log.Println("enter main")
