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 specified 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_time have passed since the last attempt to connect.
