I am using primarily remote fping and forking doesn't work.. ( In this 
case it appears that it is already forked so the main perl doesn't 
understand a fork of a fork...) the return array becomes 
multidimensional at that point. )..

I will try the multiple instances, that should work..

Next a question for future enhancement..

Can smokeping execute a script instead of sending out email for an alert?
I have cases were to prevent false calls, it an alert trips, I would 
like to run an intellegient script to check a few things and in comes 
cases actually fix the problem  prior to sending out email..
