NxLog does not reconnect to the server once a connection is restored after a network disconnect event.
Simple step to repro - Simply unplugging the ethernet cable from the back of the PC while nxlog is attempting to send data to loggly. The error happens almost instantly after the cable is unplugged. Below is the error message
2015-05-11 13:49:56 ERROR couldn't connect to tcp socket on logs-01.loggly.com:443; A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.
BTW - I am using NxLog Community Edition. Is this a known issue? I dont expect such a simple feature to not work in a community edition. It should automatically reconnect
