Feature Idea: Failed external requests not appearing in external calls



Hello, we have noticed that outgoing requests (via superagent library) that failes with error (EABORTED, ECONNRESET, ETIMEDOUT) are not instrumented/tracked in newrelic; successfull calls show up in traces if they take long enough.

This is valid both for node-newrelic 1.40 and 2.3(.1)

Is there any help you could provide with this?

Thank you
