Feature Highlight: Lambda Layer

Quoting from New Relic Blog:

For those new to the concept, Lambda layers are ZIP archives that contain libraries, a custom runtime, or other dependencies. With Lambda layers, you can use libraries in your function without needing to include them in your deployment package. Lambda layers help reduce the size of your deployment package and avoid errors that can occur if you install a package with missing or out-of-date dependencies.

New Relic’s Lambda layer CLI allows you to, with just a couple of terminal commands, get set up monitoring your Lambda functions invocations, cold starts, and many other metrics.
