We are excited to announce the general availability (GA) of the client-side metrics module for the AWS SDK for Java v2. On July 7th, 2020, we announced a preview release of client-side metrics. With release version 2.14.0 of the SDK, client-side metrics can now be used in production environments.
Client-side metrics enable you to collect and publish key performance metrics, which are recorded automatically by the SDK as you use it. These metrics help you detect and diagnose issues in your applications, such as increased API call latency and startup time. You can also use the metrics to monitor trends in your SDK usage over time and tune the SDK for optimal performance and resource usage.
For more information on this feature and how to use it, see our our blog post and AWS documentation.
