try 'smokeping --debug', it should give you some detail about
the probing.

My best guess would be that the Radius probe is doing the 20 ping pass
first, but runs out of time for the rest. I don't think the targets
are necessarily probed in the same order as they are specified in the
configuration file.

Hope this helps,
