Purge data from the default Prometheus instance

Hi,

Playing with Prometheus in the Grafana cloud. So far so, so good. But Prometheus contains a lot of bogus data. Is there a way to clean (purge) up this data? So I can start with a fresh start?

Hi @sharedps . There’s no way to purge data that you’ve already ingested into the Prometheus endpoint at Grafana Cloud however you can refine and control any future “bogus data” using these helpful guides to analyze and reduce the Prometheus metrics being sent over via remote_write method: Prometheus | Grafana Labs

Wow! That’s a big con for the cloud version in that case. But thanks for answering anyways. I think it’s better/quicker for me in this case to remove this stack and create a new one.
