At Lumigo. we believe in serverless technology, and our mission is to make serverless development easy and fast. For the past few months, we’ve been extending our observability and debugging capabilities, making it a breeze for developers to understand the end-to-end story of every request that goes through the system, find the root causes of issues and be able to easily address them.

If following the Epsagon acquisition you are looking to switch to the best alternative, Lumigo is the solution for you. Deployment only takes minutes and customizing it to the same setup you had in Epsagon is a breeze.

To help with that, we prepared a simple migration guide below. It walks you through removing Epsagon and deploying Lumigo.

Removing Epsagon

There are several methods for removing Epsagon. Choosing the best one depends on how you installed Epsagon in the first place:


In your Epsagon account, go to Functions, select all functions and click Disable Auto-Tracing from the Actions menu.

Manual wrappers

Simply delete the instrumentation code that was inserted manually

Lambda layers

If you installed Epsagon by changing your functions handlers into Epsagon wrappers and put Epsagon layers to your function configurations:

The handlers of your functions should be reset, and you should remove the Epsagon layer and any environment variables that you have configured.

The Serverless Framework plugin

Use the following command to uninstall:

serverless plugin uninstall –name serverless-plugin-epsagon

This will uninstall the plugin and remove it from the plugins list in serverless.yml.

The Epsagon component can be removed entirely by removing it in the custom section of serverless.yml.


Follow these steps to remove CloudWatch log collection:

  1. In your Epsagon account, go to Teams
  2. Select the desired team
  3. Remove the AWS IAM role

Remove the IAM role you created when you set up your Epsagon account.

Set up alerts

Lumigo comes with a number of out-of-the-box alerts allowing you to closely monitor your environment and be notified of a problem as soon as it arises. Once you’ve connected Lumigo to your environment, integrate to the services you are using to alert, share, and track issues detected by Lumigo. The services currently available in Lumigo are Slack, Teams, PagerDuty and more.

Why Lumigo?

Powerful features for monitoring, debugging and performance. Purpose-Built for Serverless.

Know the Full Story of Every Transaction

With automated distributed tracing, Lumigo visualizes every transaction, allowing you to understand the flow and correlate issues across services.

Easily see the input/output of each service, including 3rd-party services, with environment variables at the time of invocation. View parameters and values in each line of the stack trace. See payload of http and API calls. All this — without any code changes!

Get visibility into your application

For better visibility across your data Lumigo visualizes the frequency distribution of various fields on which you can query, allowing you to quickly detect and compare trends over time and prioritize issues across your applications.

Search with free text in any field that Lumigo collects or use predefined queries as a starting point to answer your questions or create more complex queries by using logical operators to better define the search conditions.

Real-Time debugging with Live-Tail

Live Tail, a whole new section in the Lumigo interface, provides a near real-time view of invocations, just like logs, making debugging easy and faster than ever before.

Take remedial actions with Lumigo alerts

The first step to resolve any problem is to know that you have a problem. The faster problems are resolved and the less impact your users would experience, and for that you need alerts.

Lumigo has you covered with out-of-the-box alerts based on best practices for errors, timeouts, throttling, memory issues, application issues and more, making sure teams quickly get the information they need on their preferred channels as soon as a problem arises.
