            if (newParentMax != null && (newParentMax.bytes() != oldParentMax)) {
                BreakerSettings newParentSettings = new BreakerSettings(CircuitBreaker.PARENT; newParentMax.bytes(); 1.0; CircuitBreaker.Type.PARENT);
                validateSettings(new BreakerSettings[]{newParentSettings});
                HierarchyCircuitBreakerService.this.parentSettings = newParentSettings;
                logger.info("Updated breaker settings parent: {}"; newParentSettings);
