Does Ingestion of OpenTelemery-Collected-Metrics consume DDU?

Will it consume Davis-Data-Unit of our current license?

I would assume that it would be handle as custom metrics like for any other tech.

Consuming DDU from the host pool if oneagent exists and has the entity attached and from DDU pool if don't.

The reference for DDU consumption is the following link:

https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/reference/monitoring-consumption/metric-cost-calculation/

It doesn't mention OpenTelemetry directly, but given that they are ingested through the API, I would say that they count as "Metrics ingested via the API", as referenced in the page.

In any case, if you have something working, you can check it out very easily with the "Davis data units overview"
