Hi Franklin,

Yep -- you got it.  

If you notice, Tobi is sorting the 20 pings that FPing
does every 300 seconds (using defaults) by the latency
values (with unknown values pushed to the top and
bottom).  The "colored line/dot" is the median value
with the smoke showing the distribution of latency
(IOW, jitter) above and below that median.  IOW, more
smoke = more jitter (variation in latency).
