Loki ingestion rate

Hey folks,

I have a question regarding configuring the ingestion rate for Loki (we are deploying non-ha single-process Loki on Kubernetes if it matters). In order to come up with a limit value, we want to measure the peak ingestion rate for our Loki instance. I had a look at some Prometheus metrics Loki exposes and found loki_distributor_bytes_received_total, which seems to be exactly what we need. Do I understand correctly that this metric can be used to estimate the ingestion rate? Does it correlate with limits_config.ingestion_rate_mb (e.g. rate(loki_distributor_bytes_received_total) will not go above the limit set in the config)?

Thanks in advance!

Cheers,
Stan
