Logstash TCP Input expected behavior when event source connection reset

When using the Logstash TCP Input Plugin, what is the expected behavior if the network connection between event source and Logstash is interrupted?

  • When the plugin is in client mode, will Logstash attempt to reconnect to the event source periodically? I don't see this happening in the code, but I may not know what I'm looking at.
  • When the plugin is in server mode, I assume Logstash will accept a new connection from the event source.
    Thanks for any input.

In client mode it will try to reconnect once a second.

Thanks, especially for the link to relevant spot in code!
