[smokeping-users] Multiple probes

Hi all,

I have already configured smokeping to monitor a large number of hosts
with the fping probe. Now I want to extend my configuration by adding a
second probe, curl, for a few of these hosts.

It might well be my fault, but I can't see from the documentation how to
enable more than one probe, or at least, my interpretation of the docs
didn't work. What I tried was:

        *** Probes ***
        + FPing
        binary = /usr/sbin/fping
        packetsize = 12
        + Curl
        binary = /usr/bin/curl
        forks = 10
        *** Targets ***
        probe = FPing
        menu = Top
        title = Network Latency Grapher
        remark = Welcome to Aidworld's SmokePing website. \
                 Here you will learn all about the latency of our network.
        + HTTP
        menu    = HTTP
        title   = HTTP
        probe   = Curl
        ++ UTLOnline
        menu    = HTTP
        title   = Web Performance
        url     = http://www.utlonline.co.uk/
        ... many FPing probes...
However, this doesn't work: both the CGI and the daemon report that the
"url" parameter is not recognised: 

        ERROR: /usr/local/smokeping/etc/config, line 117: unknown
        variable 'url'

The URL parameter is documented in the Curl.pm POD docs, and is required
for this probe to work, as far as I know.

Can anyone help me to get this configuration working?

Cheers, Chris.
