Beginners questions about DPM (data points per minute)

Hello, i’m using prometheus to send data to grafana cloud using remote_write.

i don’t understand why i’m getting 165 billable series if i’m only ingesting 2 active series… am i doing something wrong?

On another note, sometimes i get DPM as high as 1.86 always on those 2 active series… i did set prometheus scrape_interval to 60s…


by the way, i now have 0 billable series and my DPM average is 1.5… same setup
