    var Trier = require('../');
     
    // Instantiate Trier
    var tries = Trier({
      retries: 8,
      min: 500,
      max: 5000,
      factor: 2
    });
     
    function reconnect(err) {
     
      // Retrying
      tries.try(function retry(fail, metrics) {
      
        if (fail) {
          // Ups timeout, no more attempt to reconnect
          // server is not responding.
          console.error('Max attempts reached', metrics);
     
          // Lets exit, nothing more to do here.
          process.exit(1);
        }
     
        // Lets get some metrics.
        console.log('Retries: ' + metrics.retries + ' Timeout: ' + metrics.timeout + 'ms');
     
        // Try to connect again.
        connect();
      });
    }
     
    function connect() {
     
      var sock = net.connect(7999);
     
      sock.on('error', function () {
        // Ups connection failed, lets attempt a
        // reconnect
        reconnect();
      });
     
      sock.on('connect', function () {
