I have just started to use Grafana Cloud (currently on the trial version but will switch to free tier) and can see that my current Active Series count is way over the allowed 10k. I performed a quick check on the Prometheus usage (as suggested in Analyzing Prometheus metrics usage with Grafana Explore | Grafana Labs) and can see that the
apiserver_request_duration_seconds_bucket metric is very, very high.
My question is how are other users using the free tier when just scraping the Kubernest API Server will put you over the allowed 10k metrics?
Do Grafana have any recommendations on Prometheus configuration, especially Scrape configs, that strike the right blend between useful metrics and not going over the 10k limit?
