Hi Janak,

No, you call once and 0MQ will reconnect to the publisher
automatically.  You can try this with the wu example.

I'm not sure about your description here.  If pub stops, how can its
memory usage keep on increasing?

If pub stops, sub will finish processing whatever data was in-flight,
and then stop.  When pub starts again, it will send to all subs that
(re-)connect to it.  They'll reconnect automatically as soon as they
find the pub socket is available again.
