Free tier exceeded, metrics count below limit

Been using free tier for a while now, with fairly consistent usage. Recently logged in to find the warning “You’ve reached your free tier limit for metrics”. However, as far as I can tell I am under this limit. Am I missing something?

Check Billing/Usage dashboard - metric section there.

You likely have a DPM higher than 1, causing higher billable active series to reach the free 10k metric limit prematurely.

You should review your scrape intervals to evaluate how much and how often you are sending metric data: Reduce metrics costs by adjusting your data points per minute (DPM) | Grafana Cloud documentation
