I am using smokeping master/slaves with hosts all over the place and  
my hosts are in GMT time. However, for display to a real human I'd  
like to display in a local time zone the graphs so that correlations  
can easily be made with other graphing systems. Is there any problem  
with just changing the time zone in smokeping.cgi? I've had mixed  
success changing $ENV{TZ} in a running perl script in the past. I also  
don't want to cause confusion with the slaves sending data in GMT and  
then the master (smokeping.cgi) getting confused because it is US/ 
Pacific for instance just so graphs display in a friendly timezone.
