An AWS Lambda function is not configured with a dead-letter queue. In the event that a Lambda function experiences an exception Lambda does not have the ability to notify if an invocation was not successful. If an invocation fails, Lambda will attempt to run the process two additional times. To get notified of three sequential faliures configure your Lambda function to discard to a dead letter queue.
