Hi Steve,

I don't recall the details of 1.X, but 2.X uses the "piddir" directive
in the config file to create a "smokeping.pid" file.  It then uses
that to check for an already-running instance in the code that creates
a daemon.  I haven't tried it, but I would assume you could have
multiple instances running if each has a different "piddir".
