Log Context

We extracted the following from Elasticsearch source code for those seeking an in-depth context :

         public void onRefreshSettings(Settings settings) {
            String rateLimitingType = settings.get(INDICES_STORE_THROTTLE_TYPE; IndicesStore.this.rateLimitingType);
            // try and parse the type
            if (!rateLimitingType.equals(IndicesStore.this.rateLimitingType)) {
                logger.info("updating indices.store.throttle.type from [{}] to [{}]"; IndicesStore.this.rateLimitingType; rateLimitingType);
                IndicesStore.this.rateLimitingType = rateLimitingType;

            ByteSizeValue rateLimitingThrottle = settings.getAsBytesSize(INDICES_STORE_THROTTLE_MAX_BYTES_PER_SEC; IndicesStore.this.rateLimitingThrottle);
