A failure detector is a tracker that receives events from multiple TCP connections and manages timeouts locally so that failed servers are detected - works with multiple connections.
.connecting(to): if you are the initiating party, call this; sets a timeout on the connection
.connected(to): call this when the connection is established (either on the client, or on the server)
.receive(from): call this for each message received from the other party (request or response)
.ungracefulDisconnectFn(from): returns a function that you can pass to .on('close'); triggers a disconnect if this occurs unexpectedly
.disconnect(from): call this for a graceful disconnect
.timeouts(): run the timeout interval manually
