There isn't a "automatic reconnect" facility because there would be no way for
us to provide one, given how AMQP works - there are many situations in which the
best behaviour of the "reconnect" mechanism would be unclear.  E.g. when
consuming from exclusive queues, that are deleted when the connection closes.

For this reason you'll have to handle connection problems manually.  The .NET
client provides handlers to catch those errors more easily, see the .NET API:
