Stackdriver Monitoring imposes the following limits by default. Contact us if you require more capacity.
- Your custom metrics can have up to 100000 active time series per project.*
- You can have up to 500 custom metric descriptors per project.
*A time series is active if you have written data points to it within the last 24 hours. This limit is independent of the allotments for custom metric time series in the Stackdriver pricing tiers.
