It is recommended to suppress the alert first, and it will be fine once the data retention period has passed. This changefeed should no longer have relevant monitoring metrics, but the alert expression will continue to trigger because it queries an instant vector.
Alert expression: ticdc_owner_checkpoint_ts_lag > 600

Is the memory buffer not completed?

For issues with lower versions of ticdc, you can manually clean up Prometheus metrics using the API method.
