Well the master probes are visible in the logs. And at this moment the 
slave updates are also visible in the logs.

Thanks! It seems to be a problems with the permissions of 
/usr/local/var/smokeping and child dirs. Not only the .rrd files are 
updated, but also new files are created. Changed the permissions to 777 
everything works. I will use suexec to make smokeping.cgi run as the 
same user as the smokeping daemon.
