dont use filter for this. use @include.
and create separate smokeping instances that only share the
for each you @include its config ... and for the viewing app you
can @include all the configs ...
also note that the 1.2 series has the ability to fork, this may
if smokeping does not complete a cycle in the time alloted it would
complain in the logfile ... so there may be another problem ...
