[smokeping-users] Alerts and Slave

Hi all

I have a problem with slaves and alerts.

I have setup a master/slave config as the master cannot reach the remote 
hosts. All is working fine, graphs is fine. But it seems that the alerts 
doesn't work with slaves.


type = loss
# in percent
pattern = ==S,>0%
comment = any loss

type = rtt
# in milliseconds
pattern = ==S,>100
comment = more than 100 ms

++ Host1
menu  = Host1
title = Host1 (xx.xx.xx.xx)
host  = xx.xx.xx.xx
slaves= yy.yy.yy.yy
alerts= someloss,rttdetect

++ Host2
menu  = Host2
title = Host2 (aa.aa.aa.aa)
host  = aa.aa.aa.aa
slaves= bb.bb.bb.bb
alerts= someloss,rttdetect

Since rtt is always more than 100ms, I should be getting emails 
constantly right? But no emails. I have checked /var/log/maillog but no 
mail attempts.

Any ideas?
