Try running smokeping in debug mode. If that doesn't turn up anything interesting, check permissions on the directories containing the RRD files and the RRD files themselves. Verify what permissions smokeping is running under. Those things will usually lead you to finding why it's not updating information in the RRD files assuming that's what is causing your problem.
