I have an EC2 instance in my aws account. The instance is assigned to local collector in the same subnet to collect metrics. At the same time the Cloud watch data sources are also continue to collect the metrics. I was not able to completely disable the cloud collector data sources because we need some metrics.
My question is if we uncheck some of the data points(e.x : CPUUtilization) in the EC2 data sources to stop collecting the metrics, will it reduce API calls to the Cloud watch? By this way if we can save some cloud watch cost from AWS side?
Does cloud watch API calls bound to Data Sources or Data points?
