[smokeping-users] spreading checks and target "aliasing"

Smokeping seems to put quite a network load on my server
as Nagios (on the same machine) regularly fires false
alerts (mainly high response times, no packet loss). I wonder
whether smokeping could spread checks a little to smooth
the load ? (~100 fping targets). I've tried the per-probe
'forks' option, but I always see in the process list a *big*
fping with all my targets in one *big* command line :)))

Next, I wonder whether there's a clean way to have a target
in two places in the config (tested only once, of course), in
order to have an isp-centric view for the noc, and a
customer-centric view for sales reps ?

have a nice day !
