Event Hub is receiving event after 15s when using log-to-eventhub policy in APIM

I have exposed service on APIM. What I want is to send the request to Event Hub. When I try to use log-to-event-hub policy the request has been sent to Event Hub but it appears in Event Hub after 15s.

I tried to do the same with send-request policy and request appears immediately in Event Hub after calling service on APIM.

What can be the issue with log-to-eventhub policy?

Event Hubs Namespace is in Standard Tier.

    @Marko Ilic Thanks for reaching out. when using log to EventHub policy APIM does not send events instantly. Messages are queued in memory and are flushed every about ~15 seconds. This is not configurable. so, 15-20 second delay is to be expected.

    If you want to send instantaneous notification somewhere, you must consider using send-request policy.

    do let me know incase of further queries, I would be happy to assist you.
