Any risks with self scheduling balancing?

We are using ES=.1.7.5

We are facing from time to time GC old GEN , leading to cluster balancing.
The balancing consume high resource from the cluster , so i consider the below procedure until we will find the root cause of the GC.

  1. disable balancing- (cluster.routing.allocation.balance.threshold" : "100.0f")

  2. schedule external daily job that will run ES API to Enable it for duration of 1 hour in a day ( let say between 8-9AM ) using "cluster.routing.allocation.balance.threshold" : "1.0f" (Return to Default)

  3. Disable it back after 1 hour

Any risk ?
