INFO [] (DefaultPluginScheduler_Worker-10) success for the Server Statistics
[DefaultPluginScheduler_Worker-10] INFO http.RESTClient - success for the Server Statistics
Defect/Enhancement Number
The Web Console periodically makes REST pings calls to the Configured Corticon server to check whether it is alive/responsive and to collect metrics.
There is no configuration available to calibrate the intervals at which these pings are sent.

Because the Web Console is pinging the Corticon Server, the application server is, in turn, logging this information to its log.
The application server's logging behavior can be changed so that these messages no longer appear or are managed as desired.
In order to change the logging behavior, the configuration of the application server's logging mechanism will need to be modified.
