Interval Seconds
Sets a plugin-specific interval for collecting metrics. This overrides the global Interval setting. If a plugin provides own support for specifying an interval, that setting will take precedence.

Not sure why what you did would not work. Would that Interval also apply to a write plugin type? EG you would need to set an interval there too? ( seems odd to me )
