Customizing istio metrics scraped by Prometheus

Is there any way to reduce the istio metric scraping via Prometheus rule-groups or any other method? I’ve deployed Prometheus via helm chart (prometheus-community/prometheus).

I’ve also tried following the best practices document but seems like the count(workload:istio_requests_total) and count(istio_requests_total) are equal

Greatly appreciate any help! :slight_smile:
