How to configure Elasticsearch own logging?

Hello everyone,

I centralize all my systems / applications logs in Elasticsearch and one of the most prolific sources is Elasticsearch itself.

I thought that I could lower the verbosity in /etc/elasticsearch/ to warnings only by changing all the levels there to warn (such as logger.action.level = warn) but I keep on getting the log below at each query.

Where can I disable this kind of operational logs?
