The health check interval unit isn't in seconds


I’ve setup a load balancer with my Kubernetes service with type: LoadBalancer. I noticed that health check requests came in at a really fast pace (2 requests per second). I got curious and checked the interval and it was set to 5 and the unit indicated on the UI says (s) which I assumed it means seconds.

I play around with the settings and found out that if I set the value to 50 instead of 5 then health check requests came in at every 5 seconds. Is there a misconfiguration or the unit label should be changed to (0.1s)?

Could you also clarify on other settings as well?
