I think this part doesn't have any effect, and Smokeping is using the
probe specified in the 'Targets' main section rather than the Curl
probe. This can be verified by running 'smokeping -debug'.

You can fix this by either specifying Curl as the default probe in the
'Targets' section like this:

*** Targets ***

probe = Curl

or by specifying a target-specific probe like this:

++ ABC

menu = abc
title = www.abc.com/index.html availability
host= www.abc.com
probe = Curl

url = http://www.abc.com/index.html

(and similarly for XYZ).
