Custom Metrics through python custom plugin are baselined and contributes to problem identification?

Hi,

We are starting a project that will require a custom plugin using the SDK. So, we have the following question:

Custom Metrics through python custom plugin are baselined and contributes to problem identification?

And also, is there a limit for this kind of custom metrics (like more than 100 will have a cost), as indicated here for the api (pricing):

Thanks in advance.

Custom plugin metrics can contribute within the AI correlation by defining custom events and thresholds. We did not introduce any baselining here as our upcoming AI approach will find abnormal metric behavior in custom metrics without baselining anyway.

Concerning custom events within plugins see my blog post here:

Hi,

Thank you for your answer.

About the cost? does it have a limit? or customer can create any number of custom metrics this way?

Customer is preparing the budget for the project.

Kind regards,
