HighLevelRestClient log4j configuration

Hi. New to Elasticsearch and have a question about logging in the HighLevelRestClient.

I wrote a java client that uses the Rest Client but everytime I crank it up to insert records into Elasticsearch I get the following error:

Initialize RestHighLevelClient [localhost] port [9200]
ERROR StatusLogger No log4j2 configuration file found. Using default configuration: logging only errors to the console. Set system property 'log4j2.debug' to show Log4j2 internal initialization logging.

The logging then defaults to 'debug' and I get lots of logging output. I would like to be able to change the log level.
I have logging in my own code and here is the relevant log4j configuration:

Here are the basics:

On version: elasticsearch-6.2.3
Maven/Rest version build:

org.elasticsearch.client elasticsearch-rest-high-level-client 6.2.3

Does anyone know how to change the log level in the HighLevelRestClient code?

The markup hide this:
logger name="org.elasticsearch"
level value="FATAL"

After messing around, I've learned that the RestClient picks up the log level in my defined Log4j file. Doh.
