[smokeping-users] Smokeping 2 and RemoteFPing probe

I'm trying to get Smokeping2 up and running, with multiple rhosts for the 
RemoteFPing probe, but I'm getting "unknown variable 'rhost'". I've 
attached the relevant bit of the config below. It looks to me like 
Smokeping2 can't support multiple rhosts per RemoteFPing target?

I was originally working on changing Smokeping 1.x to support this by 
changing the probe to read the ruser, rhost and rbinary variables from 
$target->{vars} rather than $self->properties.

Will I have to make a similar change to Smokeping2? I thought that one of 
the changes was that there wasn't a difference between probe default 
settings and the oldstyle PROBE_CONF section?

Maybe I've misunderstood.

On another note, I had to change

         die("$file: unknown RRD version: $info->{rrd_version}")
                 unless $info->{rrd_version} eq '0001';


         die("$file: unknown RRD version: $info->{rrd_version}")
                 unless $info->{rrd_version} eq '0003';

in lib/Smokeping/RRDtools.pm to get it to work with RRDTool 1.2.x. Is that 
expected? It doesn't seem to be documented.



Here's the configuration mentioned above:

*** Probes ***

+ RemoteFPing

binary = /usr/bin/ssh
rbinary = /usr/local/sbin/fping # mandatory
rhost = localhost # mandatory

*** Targets ***

probe = RemoteFPing

menu = Top
title = Network Latency Grapher
remark = Welcome to the SmokePing website of xxx Company. \

+ Top
menu = Top
title = top

++ x_y_z_w_to_a_b_c_d
menu = x.y.z.w to a.b.c.d
title = x.y.z.w to a.b.c.d
host = a.b.c.d
rhost = x.y.z.w
ruser = nagios
rbinary = /usr/local/sbin/fping
