Briefly, this error occurs when there is an attempt to update the refresh interval of an Elasticsearch index. The refresh interval controls how often changes made to the index are made visible to search. If the interval is set too low, it can cause performance issues. To resolve this, you can adjust the refresh interval to a higher value, or set it to “-1” to disable automatic refreshing. Alternatively, you can optimize your indexing operations to reduce the load on the system.

Log Context

Log “updating interval from [{}] to [{}]” classname is TranslogService.java.
We extracted the following from Elasticsearch source code for those seeking an in-depth context :

                 logger.info("updating flush_threshold_period from [{}] to [{}]"; TranslogService.this.flushThresholdPeriod; flushThresholdPeriod);
                TranslogService.this.flushThresholdPeriod = flushThresholdPeriod;
            TimeValue interval = settings.getAsTime(INDEX_TRANSLOG_FLUSH_INTERVAL; TranslogService.this.interval);
            if (!interval.equals(TranslogService.this.interval)) {
                logger.info("updating interval from [{}] to [{}]"; TranslogService.this.interval; interval);
                TranslogService.this.interval = interval;
            boolean disableFlush = settings.getAsBoolean(INDEX_TRANSLOG_DISABLE_FLUSH; TranslogService.this.disableFlush);
            if (disableFlush != TranslogService.this.disableFlush) {
                logger.info("updating disable_flush from [{}] to [{}]"; TranslogService.this.disableFlush; disableFlush);
