Ever since I started using IQFeed, I've noticed that the feed both crashes at random points throughout the day and stops sending a heartbeat....however, I haven't noticed any discernable pattern from these crashes.

I'm checking for a connection to the IQConnect application by resetting a volatile java boolean value each time anything is received on any of the three ports (Admin port, L1 port, and L2 port). Since I expect to get a heartbeat from both the admin port and the L1 port every sec, I wait 5 seconds to reset the process / feed if I haven't heard anything.

The odd thing is that there can be a week without any problems, and then lately it has consistent been having problems.

1) Why does the IQConnect application stop sending a heartbeat?
2) What is the best way to reset the IQConnect process?

Also, is this normal? If so, how do people rely on this feed since I'm having serious doubts in its robustness
