I’m currently on the free Grafana cloud plan. It says there’s a metric limit of 10k metric series. My 2 small K3s clusters have already occupied over 5.5k metrics on the Metrics billing dashboard. Here are some questions I have:
- Do these metrics increase overtime as the clusters keep running or do they only increase when a new cluster is added?
- What happens if I exceed my 10k metrics limit? Will I not get any more metrics streamed to the grafana cloud?
- I need metrics to view the status of Kubernetes objects in my cluster and also to know how much memory and CPU is being consumed by the pods and how much resources are left on the node. Any way I can optimize the number of metrics being sent?
- If I upgrade to the pro plan on Grafana Cloud and exceed the limit of 20k, will I be charged extra without my approval?
Thanks a lot!
