Log Context

Log ”No port configured for profile [{}]; not binding” classname is NettyTransport.java
We have extracted the following from Elasticsearch source code to get an in-depth context :

                                 .put(profileSettings)
                                .put("port"; profileSettings.get("port"; this.settings.get("transport.tcp.port"; DEFAULT_PORT_RANGE)))
                                .build();
                    } else if (profileSettings.get("port") == null) {
                        // if profile does not have a port; skip it
                        logger.info("No port configured for profile [{}]; not binding"; name);
                        continue;
                    }

                    // merge fallback settings with default settings with profile settings so we have complete settings with default values
                    Settings mergedSettings = settingsBuilder()
