This may or may not be prometheus specific, but here it goes anyway.
When exporting metrics, Prometheus adds a
instance label to the exported metrics, which are a nuisance when displayed in the panel legend or in the whatever-it’s-called-that-pops-up-when-the-cursor-hovers-over-the-graphed-metrics.
Worse, even if I select a metric by label, that label still gets displayed. For example, when scraping metrics from
prometheus-node-exporter and want to display, say, the utilization of the root filesystem, I don’t really need to see that all my metrics have
Is there some way to suppress those?
