Optimizing Applications through Amazon CodeGuru’s Profiler

In this hands-on lab scenario, you are a lead engineer working at Gurus United Technologies. Your manager needs your help with reviewing an application which may have poor performance. We will use Amazon CodeGuru Profiler to review the live application for possible bugs. We will then configure profiling agents on Lambda and review the visualization that is produced from Amazon CodeGuru.
