The conn_logd_time directive specifies the time heartbeat will reconnect to the logging daemon if the connection between heartbeat and the logging daemon is broken. The conn_logd_time is specifiled according to the HeartbeatTimeSyntax. For example,
conn_logd_time 60 #60 seconds
Default is 60 seconds
Note: heartbeat will not automatically reconnect to the logging daemon. It only tries to reconnect when it needs to log a message and conn_logd_intval seconds have passed since the last attempt to connect.
