Simple Mongoose program to facilitate testing MongoDB auto-reconnect in client
//
// Program to query a local mongodb every second. This should auto-reconnect.
//
// Instructions:
//
// 1) start mongod
// 2) npm i mongoose@3.6.9 && node reconnect-mongoose.js
// 3) kill mongod
// 4) after a short interval, restart mongod
//
// Mongoose (3.6.9) should auto-reconnect when mongod has restarted,
// but doesn't appear to.
//
/*
Sample output:
$ node reconnect-mongoose.js
mongodb query ok
mongodb query ok
mongodb query ok
mongodb query ok
(KILL mongodb in another term)
mongo connection error: [Error: failed to connect to [localhost:27017]]
