Windows Exporter Generates 7K Metrics Per Machine

I am fairly new to Grafana cloud so I am still experimenting to get a sense for how things work.

I recently added a windows machine with windows_exporter enabled and it appears that 7K metrics series were generated - does that sound right or am I misunderstanding something?

That would mean the default cost per windows machine is $56/mo with Grafana cloud?

With some help from Grafana Support, I was able to see that just one part of the Windows Exporter configuration was generating the vast majority of the metrics. Adding this to my grafana config dropped usage by 80%:

    enabled: true
    - source_labels: [__name__]
      regex: "windows_service_status|windows_service_state|windows_service_start_mode|windows_service_info"
      action: drop
