Azure Monitor's included free units "10 monitored metric time-series per month" doesn't show on the pricing calculator. Are they still included?

Hello experts,

When viewing Azure Monitor using the Azure Pricing Calculator,
the ""the 10 “Free units included” 10 monitored metric time-series per month" mentioned in the pricing page:
https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/monitor/
129935-image.png

doesn't seem to show anywhere in the Azure Pricing Calculator.

It seems you are charged from the very first metric monitored.

Are these free units still included? Where can I confirm this?

Also, under “Metric Signals Monitored” when trying to set VMs Monitored to a value more than 100,000, it will snap back down to 100,000. Is there a technical limitation in Azure Monitor that caps the VMs that can be monitored to no more than 100,000?


Thank you so much for your time and expertise,
Peter

@PeterThurwachterMINDTREELIMITED-2688 - Currently Custom Application Insights metrics with no dimensions are free. If you are sending a generic azure monitor custom metrics, there is cost.

Also, collection of custom metrics dimensions is turned off by default because in the future storing custom metrics with dimensions will be billed separately from Application Insights, while storing the non-dimensional custom metrics will remain free (up to a quota). You can learn about the upcoming pricing model changes on our official pricing page.

Additional documentation reference: Log-based and pre-aggregated metrics in Azure Application Insights - Azure Monitor | Microsoft Docs

Hope the above information helps, let us know if you have any further queries.
