I have seen this behaviour in the past and it turned out to be incorrect
mail settings - the server specified in the line:
mailhost = your.mail.smarthost
was not reachable, so smokeping was timing out trying to send alerts via
the Net::SMTP module and stopped logging data for any hosts until the
failed host recovered. It may be worth checking. If you don't need to
specify a mailhost just comment out that line and leave sendmail to
handle the alert delivery, assuming you have the line:
sendmail = /usr/sbin/sendmail
and sendmail is properly configured to send mail for that server.
Hope that helps. If not it may help to post your config, or the output
of 'smokeping --debug-daemon' if you can capture it during an outage.
