You can use the cool feature of PERL which is implemented in SMOKEPING
by executing smokeping using the -makepod commandline option (or the
-man option). These will generate the documentation you need.

>From this documentation:

B<Host> can either contain the name of a target host or the string

In the second case, the target machine has a dynamic IP address and
thus is required to regularly contact the SmokePing server to verify
its IP address.  When starting SmokePing with the commandline argument
B<--email> it will add a secret password to each of the B<DYNAMIC>
host lines and send a script to the owner of each host. This script
must be started regularly on the host in question to make sure
SmokePing monitors the right box. If the target machine supports
SNMP SmokePing will also query the hosts
sysContact, sysName and sysLocation properties to make sure it is
still the same host.
