Azure Resource Metrics Integration. elastic_agent.metricbeat][warn] Charges amounted

We are retrieving the Azure resource metrics data to the elastic cloud, but in the log I see some messages. [elastic_agent.metricbeat][warn] Charges amounted to 27 are being applied while retrieving the metric values from the resource... . What does it mean that it charges $27 to retrieve the metrics?

Hi @vithal_wadje can you please share what metrics are you collecting and your Elastic Agent configuration when you see that message? Elastic Agent leverages Azure Monitor API calls to retrieve metrics and this is a cost estimate referring to the API invocation costs - look for Metrics section at Pricing - Azure Monitor | Microsoft Azure. Having said that $27 does appear steep which is where it would be helpful to understand your configuration to provide you more insights
