Grafana Free Tier RATE_LIMITED traces

In our grafana agent that is being used to send traces to grafana cloud on the free tier we are seeing this error in the grafana agent logs.

rpc error: code = ResourceExhausted desc = RATE_LIMITED: ingestion rate limit (71428 bytes) exceeded while adding 299204 bytes

Is there any kind of tuning/queuing/batching to prevent/reduce this from occurring. On the billing dashboard we are no where close to the 4MB ingestion limit

@jmathianas would you mind opening a support ticket and mentioning my username sent you - we’ll look into this and see what’s going on.

Alternatively, shoot me an email at david[dot]dorman[at]grafana[dot]com
