Starting from ARI v.1.4 build 42 (which ships with Lightstreamer Server v.3.6) a new Proxy Metadata Adapter has been released, which includes auto-recovery capabilities. In other words, the life cycle of Lightstreamer Server is no more necessarily bound to the life cycle of the Remote Metadata Adapters.

The new Proxy Metadata Adapter class is named RobustNetworkedMetadataProvider.

Below is the template for the <metadata_provider> section of the adapters.xml configuration file, which includes inline documentation of the new recovery features.
