"If an error occurs during replication, the consumer will attempt to reconnect according to the retry parameter
which is a list of the <retry interval> and <# of retries> pairs. For example, retry="60 10 300 3" lets the
consumer retry every 60 seconds for the first 10 times and then retry every 300 seconds for the next 3 times
before stop retrying. The '+' in <# of retries> means indefinite number of retries until success. If no retry
was specified, by default syncrepl retries every hour forever."
Why not just change it to retry="60 +" ?
