Amazon SQS August 2019 Update

Released on August 22nd, 2019

AWS X-Ray Now Supports Amazon SQS

You can now use AWS X-Ray to trace messages that pass through Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS). AWS X-Ray makes it easy to troubleshoot performance issues and errors in your distributed applications and microservice architecture.  

The AWS X-Ray Console shows a map of connections between Amazon SQS and other services that your application uses. You can also use the console to view metrics such as average latency and failure rates. For example, you can trace messages sent to an Amazon SQS queue for distribution to your consumers running on Amazon EC2 container service and on-premise hosts.  

Amazon SQS is a fully managed message queuing service that enables you to decouple and scale microservices, distributed systems, and serverless applications. Amazon SQS eliminates the complexity and overhead associated with managing and operating message-oriented middleware, and empowers developers to focus on differentiating work.  

AWS X-Ray support for Amazon SQS is available in all AWS X-Ray Regions.

For more information, see Amazon SQS and AWS X-Ray in the AWS X-Ray Developer Guide and Troubleshooting Amazon Simple Queue Service Queues Using AWS X-Ray in the Amazon SQS Developer Guide.

Amazon SQS Now Supports Tag-on-Create

To more easily identify the purpose of Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS) queues and track costs associated with messaging, you can categorize queues using metadata tags. For example, you can use tags to identify all Amazon SQS queues used by a particular department, project, or application.

Tag-on-create is now available for Amazon SQS. You can use a single Amazon SQS API call, AWS SDK function, or AWS CLI command to simultaneously create a queue and specify its tags. You can avoid running custom tagging scripts after creating queues by tagging queues when they are created. 

Amazon SQS is a fully managed message queuing service that enables you to decouple and scale microservices, distributed systems, and serverless applications. Amazon SQS eliminates the complexity and overhead associated with managing and operating message-oriented middleware, and empowers developers to focus on differentiating work. 

Tag-on-create is now available in all commercial AWS Regions.  

To learn more about tagging in AWS, see AWS Tagging Strategies. For more information on tagging Amazon SQS queues, see Amazon SQS Cost Allocation Tags in the Amazon SQS Developer Guide and the Tag request parameter of the CreateQueue API action in the Amazon SQS API Reference.
