[smokeping-users] Can I run Multiple smokeping servers

I currently run Smokeping on a
Linux smokeping2 #1 SMP Tue Nov 28 13:39:58 UTC
2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
I believe I am running Smokeping 2.09   When I do Smokeping --version it
show 20070126
I run with steps 120 and pings 10 using FPing to about 560 devices.
Recently smoking has been exceeding the 120 mark.  I have tried to clean
up the config file and this helped for a while but is now back.
My next step is this email to ask if it would be possible to split or
run Smokeping on 2 separate servers but use a common rrd database with a
single web access point or would upgrading to current version help
resolve my issue.  I did look and found that FPing does not support
FORKS: so I am looking for other suggestion to increase performance
short of changing steps  and starting new rrd database.
Hope you can provide some guidance on this subject.

Subject: [smokeping-users] Smokeping 500 Internal Server Error or a

Hi guys,

I was able to install and make use of Smokeping 2.34 for about 3 months

Unfortunately, one day, when I tried to access my smokeping installation


the error "500 Internal Server Error" or a blank page is displayed on
the browser...

The weird thing is,I have not made any changes to any of the config
files of my current installation of smokeping.

I have read on some posts of people who encountered the same problem,
and they say that it's just about the owner of the smokeping.cgi. I have
tried to change the owner of smokeping.cgi from root:root to
apache:apache; but, unfortunately I am still having the blank page/500
Internal server error. 

I hope somebody could help me please,,the information smokeping gives us
is very vital for me and my colleagues..

Thank you in advance,
