[smokeping-users] Misleading statistics.

Hi folks,

My take on the statistics on the graphs is that they're misleading.


The machine in question is obviously switched off overnight, and while
it's running the network performs well.  The 'packet loss' statistics
shown in the graph don't give this impression.  I inderstand that it's
not easy to distinguish between a machine that's switched off and one
that's unreachable (but there are lies, damned lies, and statistics:).

Just my 0.02 currency units.  I'll be modifying my Smokeping to do
something more to my taste in this area.
