The default settings with Smokeping/FPing are set at 20 probes every 300
seconds [5 mintues].
Lately I'm thinking that I'd probably much prefer to run less probes
more frequently - say 5 every 60 seconds - because that should give me a
lot finer detail in my graphs, correct?
Before I go and trash all my RRDs and start over again though, I'm just
wondering if there are any obvious problems with this that I might be
So ... are there any real downsides to running less probes more
frequently like I'm thinking of doing?
