If you have recently configured the OpenTelemetery collector for your Kubernetes cluster, perhaps using our documentation here and are getting a lot more events than expected there are a few things you can do.

By default, a large number of metrics are enabled. A full list of what is enabled is available here.

You can disable any metrics that aren't helpful for your use case by adding the following configuration to your config.yaml file

    enabled: false

If you want to keep ingesting all metrics while still managing your data volume, further information on filtering and sampling can be found here:
