They are different. I ignore this.

If a heartbeat chunk is not responded, the global
error counter value is increased. If this error value exceeds association_max_retrans,
abort the association. But the error counter is also added by T3-RTO, T4-RTO event.

Although we know the number of non-responded heartbeats, we also don't know
the closer of association destruction.
