Is this a sign that my DFS Namespace settings are incorrect?

Log Name: Microsoft-Windows-DFSN-Server/Admin
Source: Microsoft-Windows-DFSN-Server
Date: 9/24/2020 6:57:39 AM
Event ID: 516
Task Category: None
Level: Warning
Keywords: Operational
Computer: T2M-NAS-HP01.domain.local
DFSN service has started performing complete refresh of metadata for namespace clients. This task can take time if the namespace has large number of folders and may delay namespace administration operations.
Event Xml:
<Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">
<Provider Name="Microsoft-Windows-DFSN-Server" Guid="{B6C4E17A-2CAC-4273-A390-6F6B8C8C9F01}" />
<TimeCreated SystemTime="2020-09-24T05:57:39.486511600Z" />
<Correlation />
<Execution ProcessID="3052" ThreadID="3840" />
<Security UserID="S-1-5-18" />
<Data Name="DfsNamespace">clients</Data>
<Data Name="SyncFromPDC">true</Data>
<Data Name="SyncType">2</Data>

It appears to occur every hour in the log.

This is bot an erro log, so I am not sure why it shows up as such. The log is to inform that a refresh of metadata has begun. Why it shows so many times is beyond me, but it can be filtered out using the event log filtering.
