Metric cost calculation
By connecting your CloudWatch metrics instance to Grafana Cloud, you might incur charges. To view information on the number of active series that your Grafana Cloud account uses for metrics included in each Cloud tier, refer to Active series and dpm usage and Grafana Cloud tier pricing.
To list and retrieve metrics, the CloudWatch API calls
GetMetricData. To discover resources, the Resource Groups tagging API uses
Each service configured in a job is scraped independently. The following call counts assume we are scraping lambda:
GetResourcesis called once.
ListMetricsis called four times, once per metric.
ListMetrics returned five values for each metric,
GetMetricData would be called a single time requesting 30 metrics, one per metric plus statistic combination.
