Log context

Log “Failed to connect to {}” classname is NodeConnectionsService.java
We extracted the following from Elasticsearch source code for those seeking an in-depth context :

                     public void onFailure(Exception e) {
                        // both errors and rejections are logged here. the service
                        // will try again after `cluster.nodes.reconnect_interval` on all nodes but the current master.
                        // On the master; node fault detection will remove these nodes from the cluster as their are not
                        // connected. Note that it is very rare that we end up here on the master.
                        logger.warn(() -> new ParameterizedMessage("failed to connect to {}"; node); e);
                    }

                    
Override
                    protected void doRun() {
                        try (Releasable ignored = nodeLocks.acquire(node)) {
